Description: Journeyman Smith Luiz Gustavo Gonçalves is among the greatest Brazilian bladesmiths alive today. He is a protégé of Eduardo Berardo. His work, which has won numerous awards, clearly speaks for itself.
This bowie was hand forged from L Gustavo's own damascus, combining 15N20 and 5160 carbon steels. Gustavo's maker's mark is on the left side.
The handle is contoured curly koa (Acacia koa) set with a hand domed pin. This durable wood is only found on the Hawaiian islands and is one of the most desired woods used in knifemaking. The damascus guard is separated from the handle by coined stainless spacers, surrounding a larger damascus spacer.
This bowie is accompanied by a hand stitched custom sheath with ostrich leather overlay.
Excellent work throughout!
