Description: Mastersmith Mike Williams has been making custom knives full time since 1985 and received his Mastersmith rating in 2000. He focuses solely on forged blades and creates extremely well made bowie knives and hunting knives. This Red River Bowie was kept in a private collection since it was made. It is in brand new condition and by all appearances it could have been made yesterday!
The large clip point blade is forged to shape from Mike's own ladder pattern damascus, combining 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to provide excellent edge holding and toughness. The large clip stops just short of being fully sharpened. Mike's mark is on the left ricasso. Because the knife is made from carbon steels we recommend using camellia oil to protect the damascus blade and natural stag handle.
The mortised tang handle is secured with checkered pins. The stag is nicely matched and provides a sure, comfortable grip. The stainless steel guard and spacer are coin fileworked by hand.
Excellent work throughout on an American classic!
