Description: Bozeman bladesmith Maverik Murdock is clearly an up-and-coming maker to watch. This young bladesmith's attention to detail and devotion to the craft is clearly evident in this exceptional bowie knife. Murdock's knives are inspired by faith and family. His maker's mark shows his initials surrounding a stylized person in prayer. He also marks his knives with three dots, representing father, son, and holy ghost.
Maverik began by forging the blade to shape. 52100 carbon steel is considered by many knifemakers and users to be among the highest performing steels used in the knife industry. The small crystalline grain of this steel ensures a keen, long lasting edge. A hand rubbed finish lends an heirloom quality to his work. The high grind elegantly moves into a sharpened, raised clip.
The contoured handle is formed from stabilized maple burl. A raised brass spacer brings out warm tones in the maple. The elegant S-guard is meticulously fit to blade and handle.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stitched leather sheath, also made by Maverik.
