Description: Canadian bladesmith Mark Banfield has created an exceptional, hand forged, one-of-a-kind Bowie!
The blade was forged from 1095 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 600 grit hand satin finish lends tremendous refinement. The top clip is brought to a thin false edge. The S-guard was forged from mild steel and has been meticulously polished.
Streaked buffalo horn has been set on a full, distal tapered tang. The horn has been meticulously carved in scroll patterns. Exceptional work throughout!
