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 large 8-1/4 inch blade is hand forged from a multi-bar composite incorporating 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels and nickel. A central bar of twist pattern damascus is surrounded by a twist pattern at the edge and a firecracker pattern at the spine. A polished nickel bar separates the edge from the central bar. The resulting blade is extremely dramatic. Henry's touchmark is on the right side of the blade.
The handle is Arizona desert ironwood. Desert ironwood (Olneya tesota) is a rare wood that is only found in the valleys of the Sonoran Desert below 2,500 foot elevation. It is extremely dense and durable. In fact it is so dense that if a piece is dropped in water it will sink! The handle was carved then stippled by hand and includes decorative brass pinwork. A large fluted damascus spacer is surrounded by fileworked bronze spacers. The handle is finished with a damascus bolster and end cap.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand stitched leather custom sheath with a premium stingray leather inlay is included.
Excellent work throughout!
