Exceptional Blade Material
Our Bowie knife is crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel – a heat-treated, folded carbon steel known for its supreme resilience. The process involves meticulously folding 11 pieces of steel five times, creating 352 distinct layers. The result is a perfect balance of hardness and durability, reflected in a Rockwell hardness rating of 55-56 HRC.
The high carbon Damascus steel contains layers of the highest content carbon steel used in swords - 1095 steel. This specific combination makes the knife strong enough to retain a powerful edge while withstanding significant impact. The handle is made of African wench wood and horn, set off by Damascus steel bolsters, and it includes a leather sheath for safekeeping.
