Description: John Doyle makes an amazing Gent's Bowie. The proportions, design, and implementation are all top notch.
The 4 inch blade 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 to fill the palm, moves into a slimmer waist, and swells again as it reaches the butt. This is a knife you won't want to put down.
The guard and ferrule are both formed from Doyle's own damascus. They combine 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels in a high contrast accent. Thin spacers formed from bronze have been fileworked.
Exceptional work throughout!
