Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey creates some of the most dramatic bowies found anywhere. His melding of traditional knives with his own style has ensured his bowie knives are among the most collectible found anywhere.
The 10 inch clip point blade was hand forged from 1070 carbon steel. By forging closely to shape, he ensures optimal grain structure. The blade was heat treated using a technique borrowed from Japanese swords. The spine was coated with clay prior to quenching. This results in a soft, supportive spine and keen, long lasting cutting edge. The gently undulating heat treatment line (called a gunome hamon) turns back so that the clip is fully hardened as well. The clip point stops just short of fully sharpened and can be sharpened if desired. An antiqued finish adds an heirloom quality to this impressive blade.
The hidden tang handle is formed from Turkish walnut and secured with a large brass pin. Multiple gunstock oil treatments bring out the beautiful figure that Turkish walnut is known for. The handle meets in an heirloom fit with the antiqued oval brass guard and filed ferrule. The handle is very comfortable and fills out the hand nicely.
To keep the knife close at hand or protected during transportation, Kevin made a leather sheath from cowhide. The sheath is embossed around the border and features a bronze frog button hand engraved by Kevin.
Excellent work throughout!
