Description: Award winning Swedish bladesmith Henry Hildén held nothing back when he created this Swedish Bowie. The multi-bar composite blade is forged from a twist Damascus bar surrounded by a firecracker edge and spine. The spine and edge are forged from CK 100 and 15N20 carbon steels for exceptional edge retention. The pattern is extremely clear and shows tremendous control and skill.
The handle features basket weave pattern Damascus fittings and a highly figured masur birch burl wooden handle, featuring decorative pinwork, one of the hallmarks of Henry's work Even the end nut is forged from Damascus. Nickel silver spacers have been highly fileworked. The masur birch spacer has been fileworked and surrounded by nickel silver.
The fit and finish is extremely well executed, from the precision fit mosaic Damascus guard, to the meeting between the bolster and wooden handle.
