Description: Henry Hilden began making knives in 1995 and has become one of the most accomplished knifemakers in Sweden. He produces exceptionally stunning damascus blades and the fit and finish of his knives easily rival some of the best knifemakers in the world. This Swedish Bowie is a prime example of Henry's incredible work and could easily be at the center of any collection!
The damascus blade is hand forged from a multi-bar composite made from 1770 and 15n20 carbon steels. Four separate bars of damascus were combined to create the complex pattern. The edge and spine bars are a particularly dramatic twist pattern surrounding two bold pattern damascus bars in the center. Layers of nickel separate each individual bar and provide an elegant contrast to the complex steel. Hilden's grind lines nicely reveal the intricacies hidden within his damascus. The blade is truly exceptional and shows Hilden's work at its best!
The handle is a beautiful section of presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood. Elegant figure and warm tones make ironwood one of the most desired woods used in knifemaking. Alternating bronze and nickel spacers help the wood adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The bolster and end cap are forged from a stunning mosaic damascus that will have you admiring it for hours. A nickel silver plate in front of the bolster is hand filework and textured. The hand contoured handle provides an extremely comfortable grip.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand tooled Swedish style leather sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
