Description: John Doyle makes an amazing Bowie. The proportions, design, and implementation are all top notch.
The blade, which measures in at just over 8 inches was forged to shape from W2 carbon steel. John heat treated it using a traditional Japanese technique developed for katana. By coating the spine with clay prior to quenching, the spine remains softer and supportive, while the cutting edge becomes extremely hard -- perfect for a durable, razor sharp, and long lasting edge. The gently undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon.
The handle is formed from a particularly beautiful piece of wood -- very rare Honduran rosewood burl. This particular piece combines the warm toned heartwood with blond sapwood and immediately grabs attention. John used stabilized wood to ensure it will hold up well across time. The center of the handle is sculpted to provide both visual interest and a sure, comfortable grip.
The oval guard and ferrule are both formed from Doyle's own damascus. It combines 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels in a high contrast accent. The ferrule is surrounded by thin spacers formed from fileworked cupronickel, an alloy of copper and nickel which is highly resistant to corrosion.
This bowie is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stitched, custom leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
