Description: Over the years, Mastersmith Bill Burke has become well known for making knives that are as high performance as a knife can get. This exceptional bowie is a rare find from Bill and is sure to push the boundaries of how high performing a bowie knife can be! Whether preparing firewood for the campfire or breaking down large animals from a hunting trip, this artistic bowie has you covered.
The blade is hand forged from 52100 carbon steel -- many bladesmiths and knife users feel that this steel is among the best, if not the best steel for edge holding. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish. Bill's maker mark is on the left side of the blade and his M.S. mark is on the right side. At 10-1/4 inches, this massive blade has plenty of forward momentum for heavy chopping tasks. The large clip stops short of being fully sharpened and could easily be sharpened if desired.
The handle is made from a large section of ancient walrus ivory. Walrus ivory of this size and quality is becoming increasinly hard to find. The guard and spacer are heat blued, antique wrought iron. The wrought iron has an elegant damascene pattern. A silicon bronze spacer is hand engraved by Burke and contrasts elegantly against the wrought iron fittings.
To keep the knife close at hand, a leather sheath with an alligator inlay is included. A button snap adds extra retention to prevent the knife from accidently falling out of the sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
