Bowie and Sheath by Forja Fontenla

 We present a Bowie knife of the lineage of the "D" guard.

With a blade forged in complex Turkish damask in three steel: 15n20, 5160 and 1070, has a guard in 1070 and 15N20 pattern welded engraved with floral motifs. The same material was used in the collar and the disarmament nut. The handles are Wenge wood and nickel silver spacers ornamented with a file work. Complete set a classic wooden scabbard wrapped in leather, with nickel silver throat and chape.
