Description: This exceptional Oval Guard Bowie was created by Seattle bladesmith David Lisch. It has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. David is now a master smith. This one was made before he became a journeyman. It has never been used to cut and shows no evidence of any wear. By all appearances it could have been made yesterday.
The clip point blade is a complex mosaic damascus that shows tremendous control. The influence of Mastersmiths Tom Ferry and Jon Christensen is clearly evident in the intricate, dramatic mosaic damascus.
The oval guard, pommel, and ferrule are formed from antique wrought iron. The wrought iron shows its unique texture beneath the heat blued surface. A central column of premium sambar stag provides a secure, comfortable grip. David is particularly well known for his use of stag and this one shows his skill well. The stag is perfectly shaped and has just enough of its natural texture to be a fantastically secure grip while being very comfortable.
Exceptional work throughout!
