Description: This exceptional fighter/bowie was hand forged using virgin 52100 carbon steel. It has been carefully forged and heat treated using controlled heats to give it the performance that has made 52100 a favorite steel among makers and collectors. It has been triple quenched and triple tempered. This steel has become well known through makers such as Ed Fowler and Bill Burke and results in some of the highest performance knives found anywhere.
The guard, pommel cap and pommel are all forged from 262 layer carbon Damascus steel. These add tremendous richness to the presentation grade desert ironwood handle. The ironwood has a nice mix of light and dark grain structure. The tang is continuous, moving through the entire handle and is screwed to the pommel cap. This results in an exceptionally strong, durable knife.
The sheath is hand sewn and custom fitted using 8-9 oz. quality leather and has been hand tooled. Exceptional work throughout.
