Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey is well known for his tremendous attention to detail -- only matched by his skill at design. This large clip point bowie is a dramatic example of his work. Regretfully, few of Harvey's knives make it to the US these days. I was extremely excited when his parcel arrived at our gallery.
The 10-3/4 inch clip point blade was forged to shape by Kevin. The pattern combines bold patterns with fine details, making it pull attention from a distance and hold onto it upon closer examination. By using three separate steels, he creates particularly dramatic contrast and ensures exceptional edge holding. O1 tool steel, 5160 spring steel and K600 nickel tool steel combine in to truly elegant blade. The thick spine moves into the sharpened raised clip.
The sculpted nickel silver guard moves into a nickel silver ferrule which is in turn surrounded by meticulously coined copper spacers. The ferrule is hand engraved with scrolls by Kevin. The coffin style handle is made from Australian brown mallee burl (Eucalyptus dumosa). The convoluted wood has a warm brown tone. Decorative hand domed pins surround a nickel silver escutcheon.
This knife is accompanied by a brown cowhide sheath with a laced belt loop segment.
Absolutely exceptional work throughout!
