Description: Joe Flournoy started making knives in 1977 and joined the Knifemakers' Guild in 1979. He was taught basic forging by Bill Moran and became a Master Smith in 1992. He has won numerous awards including Best Hand Forged Knife (Blade Show, 1991 & 1993), Moran Award - Knife of the Year (1993), Best Damascus Design (Blade Show, 1995). His work, which comes out of his country blacksmith's forge, is sure to be enjoyed for a lifetime. This large bowie has been in a private collection and is in new condition. It has never been used to cut and by all appearances it could have been made yesterday.
This Bowie knife was forged to shape from Flournoy's own damascus steel. Beginning with layers of carbon steel, Joe created an elegant ladder pattern. It was differentially heat treated, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge with a soft, supportive spine. The long clip is brought just barely shy of a fully sharpened edge.
Satin finished 416 stainless steel fittings surround a handle formed from presentation grade amber stag. The warm toned antler is nicely highlighted by a thin copper spacers in the ferrule.
The knife is accompanied by a hand made Kenny Rowe leather sheath with ostrich leather inlay
