This is a truly unique and one-of-a-kind piggy back bowie set. The Bowie knife and companion ride together in the same sheath, making either knife easily accessible to the user. All work, including forging the Damascus, heat treating, and sewing the sheath was performed by Bill.
The ringed guard of the Bowie makes this knife stand out among others, and has a feel that has to be experienced to appreciate. The fittings are forged from 1084 carbon steel and cold blued for a very elegant, antiqued appearance. The tang is continuous and is drilled and threaded to the pommel for durability. The angora goat horn handle is very unique and has a marble-like appearance.
The companion's scales are from the same black sheep horn as the spacers on the Bowie and is intended for the more fine and delicate tasks not capable by the bigger Bowie.
Excellent fit and finish throughout on a very creative set.
