For your consideration is this hand forged san mai bowie knife by popular knife maker Chuck Hawes. I obtained the knife from Chuck at the 2017 Blade Show. Unused.
A big knife with a big handle
Beautiful stabelized maple burl handle. It has a blue, black purple color held on with a small copper pin. Hidden tang. double guard made from 416 stainless steel.
The hand forged 9″ blade is a combination of 12c27 Sandvik stainless with a 1080 core.Looking down from the top edge one can see the seperate steels used. Nice file work along top edge.
What appears to be a hamon line is actually where the 2 metals are sandwiched. Only a master smith can accopmolish such a beautiful blade. Chuck’s logo is stamped on one side of the blade.
He had a custom sheath made for the knife.
14 1/2″ OAL, 9.0″ Blade, 1/4″ Thick The handle is 5 1/4″
