Description: Journeyman Smith Michael Olive lives in the Ozarks. Michael has been making knives for over 20 years. His work has tremendous integrity of design. Though this Gent's Bowie would be a good choice for most any collection, it is so comfortable in the hand, that it will be a tremendous temptation not to take it out on your next hunting trip. From there, it is sure to become a knife that won't leave your side.
Michael began this knife by hand forging the 1084 carbon steel blade closely to shape. This ensures a small crystalline structure with exceptional edge holding.
The nickel silver oval guard is satin finished and perfectly fit to handle and blade. The handle is formed from stag with a cocobolo spacer. The end of the handle is completed with a stainless steel end cap. The end cap is carved to match the natural texture of the stag. The natural stag forms a secure, comfortable grip that you won't want to put down.
Exceptional work throughout!
