Description: This is an exceptional Bowie from up-and-coming maker Chuck Richards. The blade was hand forged to shape from his own 325 layer Damascus. A differential heat treatment results in a soft, supportive spine, with a long lasting, keen edge. The clip is brought just shy of fully sharpened. Bold twist pattern Damascus fittings are used through the guard, ferrule and butt cap. The curly koa wood handle brings in warm tones. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
