Description: Billy Bob Sowell of Iron Horse Forge, earned his Master Smith stamp in 2009 and currently lives in Georgia. He worked as a locomotive engineer for Norfolk Southern Railroad for 39 years and before that was a Poseidon missile tech on a nuclear submarine. Since childhood, knives were a fascination of his.
Billy Bob learned from some of the best in the industry. Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley taught him to make damascus and folders. Rick's influence is clearly visible in this elegant gent's folder. Mastersmith Jim Batson taught him to make Bowies. Mastersmith Don Fogg taught him just about everything else … from heat treating to finishing. He even took Fogg’s sword class at Campbell Folk School and went to about every hammer-in that he could over the years, learning from countless presenters who helped him along the way.
Billy Bob won the award for “Best Antique Bowie by an ABS Journeyman Smith” three years in a row – making him the only maker to have won three times.
This folder features a drop point blade forged from Billy Bob's own damascus. The radial pattern mosaic damascus shows tremendous control. It is the sort of blade that it is easy to examine for hours, finding something new each time. The blade has silky-smooth action and is perfectly centered. It is easily opened single handed.
Ancient mammoth ivory scales are dovetailed to damascus bolsters for a perfect fit. Green tones in the mammoth ivory are the result of minerals moving into the ivory across thousands of years. Green tones are particularly rare and desirable. 15N20 carbon steel liners are heat blued and textured. The liners surround a twist pattern damascus backbar. Screws throughout are heat blued and fileworked.
Exceptional work throughout!
