Description: Journeyman Smith Gary Rodewald makes an exceptional bowie knife and the Koa Hunter's Bowie makes a big impact. This bowie has been in a single private collection and is in new condition. It has never been carried or used. By all appearances it could have been made yesterday!
The 7-1/2 inch clip point blade was hand forged to shape from Gary's own carbon steel Damascus. The Maiden's Hair pattern is immediately captivating -- both from a distance and upon closer examination. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance. Gary rounded the spine and choil to provide a comfortable grip even during extended use.
The handle is formed from presentation grade curly koa wood which is perfectly fit to the satin finished stainless steel guard. The knife feels very nimble for its size.
Accompanied by tooled leather sheath made by Gordon Kenley.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
