Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey is well known for his tremendous attention to detail -- only matched by his skill at design. This large clip point bowie is a dramatic example of his work. Regretfully, few of Harvey's knives make it to the US these days. I was extremely excited when his parcel arrived at our gallery.
The 11 inch clip point blade was forged to shape by Kevin. The complex pattern is one he calls Zig-zags on Ws. After creating the Ws pattern damascus, Kevin forged zig-zag ladders into the steel for a truly exceptional, high contrast pattern that is immediately captivating. The thick spine moves into the sharpened raised clip.
Nickel silver fittings surround marino ram's horn scales. Each side of the large double guard and pommel are meticulously engraved with fine scrolls by Harvey. Corby bolts are floral engraved.
This knife is accompanied by Mexican loop sheath with ostrich leather overlay. A large concho is held with latigo laces. Kevin included a tin of Harvey's Conservation Wax. Kevin has done a lot of experimenting over the years to create this wax which will help protect the knife from rust.
Absolutely exceptional work throughout!
