Description: Mastersmith David Anders specializes in bowie knives -- it is a style that he has clearly perfected.
This Southwest style bowie has fossil mammoth ivory scales are held on with 8 small and two large nickel silver pins on each side, creating a very dramatic look. The mammoth ivory bark has spectacular green tones with hints of the cream toned ivory just below the surface. By casing the tang in nickel silver, David protects it from skin oils, which can cause the tang to oxidize. Attention has been paid to every detail.
