Description: John Doyle makes an amazing Bowie. The proportions, design, and implementation are all top notch.
The blade, which measures in at just over 8-1/2 inches was forged to shape from John's own damascus, combining 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels into an intricate swirling pattern. The high contrast pattern is immediately captivating.
The handle is formed from a particularly beautiful piece of wood -- the presentation grade koa has a very tight curl and shows off chatoyancy -- the appearance of the pattern changing as the handle is turned in the light. John used stabilized wood to ensure it will hold up well across time. The handle swells as it moves away from the bolster, moves into a slimmer waist, and swells again as it reaches the butt. It is a handle you won't want to put down.
The guard and ferrule are both formed from Doyle's own damascus. It combines 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels in a high contrast accent. A thin spacer formed from bronze has been fileworked.
This bowie is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stitched, custom leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
