This is a BEAUTIFUL custom-made Damascus Bowie Knife that isover 13 inches long; with a blade that is over 8 inches long. This knife was designed by Antonio Banderas,from Spain. There is absolutely no other knife like this; Antonio’s custommakes this only one piece. The heavy duty blade, going all the way inside thehandle without any joint or weld, is rock solid.

Antonio Banderas designed and hand-forged the blade of thisknife with 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels. The beautiful Damascus blade ofthe Bowie is the result of hours and hours of forging. Not many custom makerscan keep such pattern of layers upon layers flowing all the way to the edge ofthe blade, which creates a saw-blade effect at microscopic level, allowing theblade to keep cutting while other blades have dulled. Antonio Banderashand-forged the blade of this knife with 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steel truelayers (512). Blade was given excellent heat treatment and Rockwell hardness ofthe blade along its edge is 59 and along the spine is 42-45. The thick bladehas fantastic hand grinds on both sides with top side left with a falseedges. Spine of this blade has beautifulfile work.

The Bowie handle is an incredible work of art. It is made ofFossil Giraffe bone, Bull Horn, Burl wood, and Damascus with brass and fiberspacers. Bowie is complimented with a beautiful hand-forged Damascus guard andbutt cap.

The leather sheath is totally hand-tooled and sewn. Extrathick leather and strong stitching make this sheath robust which can withstandyears of rough and tough use. The sheath can be worn on belt. The sheath is missing a snap.

Hi dutchs!

These are in my personal collection. Wifey says I need to get rid of stuff to buy stuff that I want, so I am paring down my collection.

Yes, the Damascus is awesome and wouldn't want to sell except for personal reasons.

Thanks!
