Description: ABS Mastersmith Bill Buxton prides himself on making knives that are different from any others, and this walrus ivory bowie is a prime example. Bill's penchant for dramatic combinations and exacting standards have led him to become a most highly sought after maker in the collector world.
The mosaic damascus blade was forged to shape from 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels and is immediately eye catching. The combination of these steels results in a dramatic and highly contrasting pattern.
An oval guard forged from the same damascus is fitted to the handle, which is comprised of a single piece of ancient walrus ivory. The pooling striations in the damascus pattern accentuate the subtle dappled tapioca in the walrus ivory handle and is extraordinarily complementary. A domed pin completes the handle.
A custom fit, hand-tooled leather sheath accompanies the knife. Snakeskin inlay adds elegant beauty. By combining these unique materials, Bill creates a knife that is truly one of a kind and sure to be a cherished treasure.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
