Description: This dignified and imposing Combat Bowie has a 9-1/2 inch long blade. The spine is a hefty 1/4 inch thick. A distal taper to the blade results in an optimal balance in the hand. The clip is fully sharpened. Assuring a keen, lasting edge, Kevin has differentially heat treated the blade. This combines a soft, supportive spine, with exceptional edge holding. The bronze guard protects fingers. The thumb ramp is fileworked for a secure thumb purchase, and ingeniously carved finger grooves assure a perfect grip. The olive wood handle has an extraordinary grain structure featuring a compelling mix of light and dark tones. Brass pins and a lanyard hole finish the handle. Accompanied by a tooled leather sheath, the piece shows a consistent standard of excellence. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
