Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike many Nordic knifemakers, Michael believes very strongly in sole authorship, from forging the blade to shape, to creating the damascus, to making the sheath. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic. Micke is one of the few Swedish makers to make such large, impressive Bowies. This handmade damascus bowie is truly a work of art!
The dramatic 11-1/2 inch blade is formed from two composite damascus bars. The upper bar is formed from a complex twist pattern. By forging the firecracker pattern edge from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels, Micke ensures exceptional edge holding. A long swedge runs half way up the blade. A large choil cutout offers several different grips
The handle combines impressive mammoth ivory scales with a damascus S-guard and engraved stainless steel bolsters. The mammoth ivory scales combine cream caramel, and rare blue tones. Front and rear bolsters are engraved in Norse knotwork. The beautifully done clamshell and S-guard are made from Micke's own twist pattern damascus. Absolutely stunning!
If the knife didn't have enough interest to grab you, the knife is accompanied by a handmade twist pattern damascus sheath. The all-damascus construction is stunning and matches the knife beautifully. Copper rivets and accenting offer a great contrast and make the sheath really stand out!
Exceptional work throughout!
