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.

Frequently asked questions about CameronCustomCutlery

Never store knife for long periods in leather sheath! Leather holds moisture and promotes rust in all steel even stainless.

Damascus steel can oxidize or rust to some degree with normal use; additional care needs to be taken with a Damascus steel knife. There are several methods of controlling the oxidation. Periodically apply a light coat of good oil (gun or knife) to the blade. For pocket carry apply a good coat of Carnuba Wax, which is a combination of a very mild abrasive polish and wax. Carnuba Wax can be applied over the entire knife then buffed with a soft cotton cloth.

Should oxidation or rust occur that is not easily removed with wax and buffing, then use 0000 steel wool to clean and polish then coat with oil or wax.
