Black Bear Bowie
About this Custom Black Bear Bowie:
This is your classic "Mountain Man" style bowie knife. The knife features a fully hand-contoured and shaped handle. The handle is made from a stabilized and blue dyed redwood burl with a moose tine. The handle is a beautiful combination of new and old materials giving it that "rustic" feel. There are thin red and blue g10 spacers that adds further beauty and gives a nice contrast between the brass guard and redwood. The blade is made from our class 'Twist" pattern of high-carbon damascus which is made up of 1080 and 15N20, each blade has around 200 layers of steel. The leather sheath is made from 8 oz, saddle skirting which has a beautiful brown color dye. The leather we used comes from one of the oldest tanneries in the USA, Wickett & Craig. The sheath has a hand-tooled edge that gives a beautiful accent to the sheath. Each knife is hand forged, ground and made by our team of skilled artisans. Enjoy this timeless piece for generations to come!

*Just like all things, proper care should be given to the knife blade. We recommend cleaning with warm water and completely drying after use. We recommend applying WD40 or some type of gun oil to the blade immediately after drying to help deter spotting/rusting. Always clean and oil your knife before extended storage. Never store your knife in the leather sheath for extended time periods. The high-carbon nature of this damascus steel is prone to rusting and discoloration if not properly cared for.
*Logo and other markings will be placed on the blade after purchase is made.
