Description: Ain't Superstitious Bowie is among Raymond Richard's masterpieces to date. This large Bowie is nearly a sword when wielded in the hand.
The large blade as a graceful false edge that moves along the spine. This pulls the weight out of the blade and creates an aggressive point. An appleseed grind assures a very strong edge.
The S-guard is hand forged from antiqued 1018 carbon steel. The remainder of the fittings are forged from wrought iron recovered from an 1850s wagon wheel. The wrought iron has a nearly Damascene pattern. The handle, is formed from a large sambar stag crown that has been antiqued. The resulting handle is very comfortable and secure in the hand. Excellent fit and finish throughout with a great balance.
