Description: David Lisch is perhaps best known for his Split Ring Bowies and his understanding of stag. This exceptional knife brings both of his loves together into one spectacular bowie! It was made shortly before David became a mastersmith in June of 2015.
The 10-1/2 inch blade was forged to shape using David's own mosaic damascus combining 15N20 and , 1080 carbon steels. The complex pattern is immediately captivating from a distance and holds attention upon closer examination. David is a master at the forge and this steel -- both in terms of complexity and clarity -- shows his work at its best. The blade has a long false edge moving into David's JS mark just in front of the split ring guard.
The premium stag handle is surrounded by mosaic damascus fittings. The split ring guard is a modification on the classic S-guard and shows David's background as a blacksmith. It is a guard that few makers would even attempt. A textured silicon bronze spacer is set between the guard and damascus ferrule. The handle is extremely comfortable and is one you won't want to put down!
Exceptional work throughout!
