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 rivals 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 damascus blade was hand forged from a multi-bar composite combining 1095, 15N20 and nickel. Hilden's grind lines nicely reveal the intricacies hidden within his damascus. The blade is truly exceptional and shows Hilden's work at its best!
The handle is as dramatic as the blade! Premium woolly mammoth bark forms the center of the handle. 18k gold hand domed pins seat the ancient ivory in place. A fluted section of caramel toned mammoth ivory is followed by a fluted section of buffalo horn. Thinner fileworked silver and brass spacers are set in between. The guard and pommel are forged from mosaic damascus. Drawing inspiration from the world of Japanese swords, a silver habaki at the front of the handle protects the blade from scuffs and scratches when inserted into the sheath.
To keep the knife at the ready, a hand tooled, single seam custom sheath is included. The sheath features a damascus overlay (set with 18k gold pins) and has a wood inner.
Excellent work throughout!
