Description: Bladesmith Peter Bromley specializes in historical recreations. His work is both creative and historically accurate. This Bowie is a replica of the Enoch Drabble Bowie shown on page 76 of Norm Flayderman's renowned book The Bowie Knife: Unsheathing an American Legend. The original Enoch Drabble Bowie was made circa mid-to-late 1830s. Like Peter's rendition, the wood handle displays incised fluted carving at the pommel and German silver mounts.
Peter began by hand forging the blade from 1075 carbon steel and satin finished. The clip is brought shy of a fully sharpened edge, whereas the cutting edge is razor sharp. The carved handle features German silver escutcheon on both sides. Nice work throughout on a knife that is very true to tradition!
