Description: Mastersmith David Anders is well known for his Bowie knives and a gent's knife that this one makes it clear why. The 8 1/4 inch blade is forged to shape from David's Feather pattern Damascus. This bold pattern combines carbon steels with thin lines of pure nickel for a particularly dramatic, bold pattern. Heat bluing brings out gold, blue, and purple tones.
The handle has an oval guard along with front and rear bolsters -- all made from mild steel. They are gun blued to black tones. Gold wire inlay adds tremendous flash to the knife. Mother of pearl scales are precision fit to the front and rear bolsters and are set with two large pins and 10 small pins.
Exceptional work throughout!
