Description: Here is a rare find from South African Mastersmith Kevin Harvey, as his knives rarely reach the US market these days. His unique style and exceptional fit and finish are readily evident in his work.
This medium sized clip point bowie was forged to shape using Heartbeat W's pattern damascus. The swedge is fully sharpened.
The guard is oval shaped nickel silver, antiqued and finely hand-engraved by Kevin on both sides with a fine running feathers pattern (a modification on the classic running wheat pattern). The ferrule is likewise engraved but features oak leaves and acorns. The nickel silver pommel is one of the highlights on this piece. It has been carved to match the natural grooves in the stag handle An intricate eagle's head is engraved and surrounded by oak leaves and scrollwork. It is exquisite! The knife is accompanied by a hand-stitched, elephant skin over cowhide sheath.
