If you own only one Bowie knife it should be this one. The blade is hammer forged and has the most beautiful marbled wood handle. I started with a hammer forged knife blank from Valley Forge (stamped in the steel) with a full tang. I finished the edge and polished to a brilliant shine top edge and cutting edge. The body of the blade is left in the hammer finish and has been heavily waxed. I surrounded the full tang with what started as a solid block of the most beautiful sunburst Amboyna burl marbled wood , I split the block and used cocobolo as spacers so the tang is hidden however make no mistake the blade is one solid piece 17" long. I hand carved the handle into a sloping curve even though the tang inside is straight. It has a hard finish of Shelawax, a had rubbed then heat hardened finish. I custom shaped the brass guard to the handle and glued a Texas star concho on the butt for a finished effect. The hand tooled leather sheath has full fringe. Thanks for looking and please check out my other knives.
