Description: Journeyman Smith Keith Fludder resides in New South Wales, Australia. He started making knives in 1989 is now a full time maker.
Keith's knives are works of art that excel in performance. This bowie knife really shows his skill at the forge.
The long, clip point, recurve blade was forged closely to shape beginning with his own feather pattern damascus. The pattern is high contrast and immediately grabs attention.
The handle is formed from a solid piece of ancient walrus ivory. It is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist, and swell again at the back of the handle. A central mosaic pin is made from copper and stainless steel. The S-guard brings bright blue tones with a transitional ferrule formed from bronze.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched, leather sheath that has been inlaid with sea snake skin.
Exceptional work throughout!
