Description: This exceptional Bowie is the work of Brazilian bladesmith Luciano Dorneles. The long, sleek blade features a sharpened swedge that goes approximately 3/4 distance up the blade from the point. Dorneles' version of the explosion pattern (famous amongst Nordic makers) is very tight and has tremendous detail. The blade fits perfectly to the matching oval Damascus guard. The stabilized giraffe bone handle is attached using four stainless pins. On the right side, Dorneles has inlaid a mother of pearl escutcheon. The handle is finished off with a Damascus pommel. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
