Description: Bladesmith Peter Bromley is well known for creating replicas that capture the spirit of the original work and yet adds to it. His attention to detail is spectacular. Here, Peter has combined the styles of several original Bowies into a work that is both true to the originals, and unique to him. He calls this one "Combination Bowie".
The blade was forged from 5160 carbon steel and has a differential heat treatment assuring a strong, long lasting edge. The blade nicely meets up with the nickel silver guard (also satin finished). A sambar stag handle results in a stable handle that fits comfortably into the handle. Sambar is becoming increasingly difficult to find in the United States. A nickel silver butt cap results in a nice balance in the hand. The cap is decorated with tagua nut ornamentation -- this rainforest nut looks and works similarly to ivory. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
