Description: Mastersmith David Anders is best known for his high end Bowie knives and fighters and this cavalry Bowie is among his best. The long, slender blade was hand forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel round bar. By starting with round bar, David was able to forge an integral ferrule that sits in front of the cast guard. The clip is chisel ground and is brought just shy of a razor edge, whereas the blade edge is razor edged. A fuller travels across the right side of the blade.
The cast guard is formed from nickel silver and shows excellent detail. The handle incorporates fossil mammoth ivory scales with 416 stainless steel fittings. A stainless steel frame encloses the tang, protecting it from rust or oxidation. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
