Split ring guard Bowie

This Bowie has a blade from EN42J, AISI 1080 high carbon tool steel, the blade length is 235mm with a full flat grind, blade width is 43mm, thickness on the spine is 6mm and an overall length of 370mm including the pommel nut. The blade has had clay applied to give a differential temper line when quenched. The hand guard is a split ring in the D Lisch style with vine file work, thorns and a clam shell filed into the top. There are also three smooth brass spacers between the blade and the bolster. The gun blued bolster has a thin nickel silver line running through it's centre. The Sambar stag handle has been left natural and cleaned back to reveal more of the white antler. The steel butt cap is gun blued, filed to match the flutes on the antler and held in place with a gun blued pommel nut. The leather sheath is a Mexican loop style dyed golden brown. The main body of the sheath is golden brown and black with a python skin inlay on the front panel and a Sam brown stud and keeper strap. Please contact me for price and availability.
