A perfect companion for hacking through the wilderness, or surviving the apocalypse.

Blade Length: 9"

Overall length: 14.5"

Blade width: 2" at widest point.

Spine width: Approximately 1/4" at thickest point.

Steel: 5160 High carbon spring steel

Handle: Bocote wood with pyrographic designs. The designs, while adding a bit of pizazz, also provide additional grip via the power of texture!

My blades have soul to them, They are entirely hand crafted, and unique. You won't be able to match the quality, performance and passion of these knives with anything store bought. They are heirloom quality, extremely effective tools.

The blade is differentially quenched and tempered 5160 high carbon steel. Which is to say, the spine is soft, flexible and durable, the edge is extremely hard. The result of this heat treating method is that you have a durable, springy blade with a killer edge that will last through a long period of use. This one has deeply etched abstract designs. You can feel them when running your fingers over the surface.

I harden my knives using a computer controlled kiln. Using this tool allows me to get maximum edge retention out of a given piece/type of steel.

This bowie comes complete with a hand made leather sheath, also created by me. It looks like a fir tree! The iconic tree of the Pacific Northwest, where this was crafted.

Each blade I sell has a my lifetime warranty, covering reasonable uses. With proper care, one of my blades could last multiple generations.

Victory through fire and steel!
