This beautiful blade was the winner of the Best Bowie competition at the Idaho Knife Association Traditional and Tactical Show. It was hand forged using W2 steel, then heat treated using a traditional clay quenched method to create a smokey hamon. The forge scale is left on the flats of the blade and transitions into a distal taper with unsharpened swedge. The multi-piece handle has a heat colored brass guard, a hot blued spacer followed by a stabilized maple burl handle, accented by a mosaic pin.
This set includes a custom handcrafted vegtan leather sheath with a beaver tail inlay.
