Description: This Mosaic Damascus Bowie was made by Ohio bladesmith Justin Chenault. Justin started making knives in 2005. His first foray into smithing was in a high school class where he was tasked with forging a hatchet for camping. After graduating high school, Justin assembled the basics of his own blacksmith's shop. He quickly joined the Southern Ohio Forge Associate (SOFA) which helped him connect with other smiths. Justin is a journeyman smith with the American Bladesmith Society. He won Season 7, Episode 6 of Forged in Fire, proving his skills on national television.
The 8 inch blade is hand forged from Justin's own mosaic damascus, combining 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding and chip resistance. Justin's mark is on the left side of the ricasso.
Presentation grade mammoth ivory bark combines cream, caramel, and green tones. It is set on a heat colored zirconium frame and meets perfectly with the heat colored zirconium guard and pommel. The pommel can be twisted to disassemble the knife if cleaning or maintenance is needed. Take-down construction requires tighter tolerances and shows Justin's focus on the small details.
A custom leather sheath is included that features a heat colored zirconium frog.
Exceptional work throughout!
