Description: I was tremendously pleased to meet bladesmith Dave Skinner at the 2019 Guild Show of Southern Africa. Dave brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives. Over the years since then, his work has continued to develop and grow.
This Gent's Bowie is a tremendous knife.
The blade was forged to shape from Skinner's own damascus, combining 1080 and 15n20 carbon steels. The blade is flat ground for a high performing edge.
The contoured handle is Honduran rosewood. This dense, resinous wood has a beautiful mix of warm brown and dark brown striations. The guard is antique wrought iron. Fluted black G10 spacers surround a coined nickel spacer.
This Bowie is accompanied by a custom tooled leather sheath by Felicity McNamara. It is exceptional and includes ostrich shin leather inlay.
Exquisite work throughout!
