Description: This is an exceptional Bowie! The long, slender Damascus blade has a long clip that is fully sharpened. The hand forged blade was distal tapered for optimal balance. A mar quench, cryogenic heat treatment, and triple temper result in optimal edge retention.
The handle is formed from curly koa with a central mosaic pin. Darker curly koa accents nicely highlight the gently undulated grain of the wood. Red and white fiber spacers allow the handle to adjust to changes in humidity and temperature. The bronze oval guard brings the weight to the center. The front has been textured, the rear has been satin finished. Exceptional work throughout.
