This burly Bowie has a blade of patterned Damascus steel which is fitted to a grip of finely polished bone and filework-embellished brass. The mixing and melding of two different steels into a single blade by the bladesmith is evident in the rippled patterning which is boldly evident on the blade. The false edge is unsharpened and the base of the blade spine is adorned with careful filework. The wide blade of this Bowie will cut and slice with authority and its well-tapered tip and thinned false edge ensure it can pierce and puncture quite ably.
Included is a sheath crafted from sturdy leather which is constructed with tight leather lacing and fine stitching. A belt loop anchored with a pair of sturdy rivets allows for easy wear and an integrated retaining strap with brass button secures this fighting dagger in its sheath.
Please Note: The grip is formed from a section of bone and thus it is natural for it to have some asymmetry to its form due to the form of the organic bone material used.
