Description: This exceptional Bowie is the work of Brazilian bladesmith Luciano Dorneles. It was made in the spring of 2004 and has been in a single collection since it was first made and sold by BladeGallery. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. By all appearances it could have been made yesterday.
The long, sleek blade features a sharpened swedge that goes approximately 3/4 distance up the blade from the point. The wolf tooth pattern Damascus is a mixture of bold and detail, such that the blade is interesting both up close and from a distance.
The blade fits perfectly to the damascus oval guard. The guard is fileworked around the edge. The mortised tang sheep horn handle is completed with nickel silver pins and a nickel silver lanyard hole. Excellent fit and finish throughout. This is clearly the sort of work that has made knives by Luciano Dorneles sought after!
