Description: Award winning knifemaker Mastersmith Kevin Harvey is well known for his tremendous attention to detail -- only matched by his skill at design. This gent's Coffin Handled Bowie is a truly exceptional knife and shows his skills both as a knifemaker and as an engraver.
The 7-1/2 inch blade was forged to shape from Harvey's Heatbeat pattern damascus. By combining carbon steels, Kevin ensures exceptional edge holding. A differential heat treatment provides a strong, supportive spine and ultra-hard cutting edge. The polished steel shows tremendous skill in the forge.
The handle is formed from presentation grade curly red bushwillow (Combretm apiculatum). This warm brown toned wood is particularly dramatic and features a tight, regular curve with golden highlights. The guard and ferrule are formed from nickel silver. Both are meticulously engraved by Kevin. The handle is completed with hand domed nickel silver pins.
This knife is accompanied by a custom sheath, also made by Mastersmith Kevin Harvey. The black leather sheath is hand tooled and features Mexican loop contruction.
This exceptional sole-authoriship Bowie is Mastersmith Kevin Harvey's work at its absolute best, combined with some of the most dramatic wood I have seen in quite some time. Simply majestic!
