Item No. 9 is a Searles pattern Bowie in hand forged 1095, L-6 and meteoric iron. The 13 1/2" single edged blade is welded in a Ladder Pattern and it is just exquisite! This knife is FAST in the hand and feels very solid.
As you can see, the patterning is tight and the contrast is quite easily seen. This blade is one of the tightest "Ladder Pattern" pieces I have done in a single edged knife. Is has the look of a high quality curly maple..
The one piece Bovine Ivory grip is finished in red, gold and amber colours. The guard, pommel plate and studs are phosphor bronze.
This knife has an overall length of 19 1/2" . It is a large knife but as I said...moves quickly and is very responsive. All in all this is a beautiful piece of cutlery. Comes with a black leather sheath.
