At the 2014 Antique Arms Show in Las Vegas I purchased this large completed damascuss bowie style blade & damascus guard from Brad Vice of Alabama Damascus. I purchased the sambar stag slabs handle material from Culpepper Material supplier also at the show.
Brad’s damascus is used by many custom knifemakers. He combines great patterns with high quality.
I had my friend knife maker Jim Ort combine the pieces and make this fine looking completed knife.
As mentioned above the bowie blade was complete when I obtained it. Brad had heat treated, sharpened the edge & did file work along the top of the blade. The guard was not a perfect fit and Jim had to do some customizing work. His work resulted in a perfect fit
Jim added the sambar stag slabs to the blade, shaped them to the handle held them on with 2 416 stainless pins leaving the full tang blade.
12.0″ OAL, 7.5″ Blade, 1/8″ Thick, 1 3/8″ Wide
Jim also made this beautiful brown leather belt sheath.
