Forged Clay-Hardened Bowie Knife For Sale

Price: $300

Add to Cart

A medium-sized hand-forged clip-point Bowie, forged from W2 steel and clay-hardened to produce a subtle hamon. The blade was hand rubbed to 1000 grit and then gently etched to reveal the hamon. An intricate file pattern decorates the spine. The clip point has a long false edge.

The full tang grip is angled slightly and handled with figured olivewood scales, which are secured with two copper screw rivets. The guard is sawn from 1/4" solid copper, patinaed with a torch and soldered to the tang. 

The heavyweight oiled leather sheath is hand-stitched and stained dark, with a laced rawhide throat decorated with tacks and a beaded tassel designed to slip into the top of a boot.

The blade is 7” long, 3/8” thick, and 1.5” wide. The grip is 4.5” long. Overall length of the knife is 11.5".
