Description: Gary Rodewald is an exceptional knifemaker and this Hunter's Bowie is a tremendous example of his work. Though this knife will be a high performing knife, it would be equally at home in any collection.
Rodewald began this knife by forging the san mai blade material. A central layer of W1 carbon steel is surrounded by Gary's own damascus. The transition between the swirling damascus and the cutting edge is quite dramatic.
A silicon bronze guard joins seamlessly to the curly koa wood handle. By using stabilized wood, Rodewald ensures that this knife will hold up beautifully when used hard.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stitched custom leather sheath.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
