Description: David Broadwell is well known for his attention to detail and the flowing lines of his carved blades. This exceptional carved Bowie has been in a private collection since it was first made. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. By all appearances, David could have made it yesterday.
The long, trailing point blade is formed from damascus forged from carbon steels. The ricasso is carved in flowing arcs.
Front and rear bolsters are formed from matching damascus. A central section of premium Baltic amber is set on the full tang. Because the amber is translucent, this creates a very dramatic effect and allows the pattern of the distal tapered damascus tang to be seen through the amber. Both the amber and bolsters are carved to reflect the carving on the handle. The handle is completed with domed damascus pins.
Exceptional work throughout.
