This bowie style knife is made from a hand forged piece of W2 with a clay quench hamon. The forge marks have been left on the spine to accentuate the gloss of the snakewood handle. The blade is hand rubbed with a acid wash finish. The guard is forged from a 100+ year old piece of wrought iron also with a acid wash finish. The brass spacer has a hammered and polished finish with a nod to both the forged blade and the polished snakewood handle. The whole build is then finished with a mosaic pin. The knife aslo comes with a custom hand tooled leather sheath that has been dyed to match the snakewood handle.
This knife won "Best Hand Forged Knife" at the Missoula Knife show in Montana.
