Description: Canadian bladesmith Mark Banfield has created an exceptional, hand forged, one-of-a-kind Bowie!
The blade was forged from 1080 carbon steel and was heat treated using a traditional Japanese technique whereby the spine is coated in clay, resulting in a soft, supportive spine with an ultra-hard edge. The resulting gently undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon. A 400 grit hand satin finish lends tremendous refinement. The top clip is brought to a thin false edge that could be easily sharpened. Both the pommel and guard were carved from brass and have been appealingly textured.
The handle incorporates zirocote and African blackwood. A central buffalo horn spacer is surrounded by thin brass spacers, nicely highlighting the brass used for the guard and pommel. The handle has been carved for a perfect feel in the hand. Exceptional work throughout with an exceptional fit and finish.
