This is a beautiful and totally impressive Bowie by Tim Hancock. The blade is ladder pattern multi-faceted Damascus with a Spanish notch and nickel silver tang wrap. Full Damascus tang through the scales culminating in a slightly curved butt which enhances the grip. Flawless elephant ivory scales. Top edge is sharpened approximately 4 inches back from the tip. Blade is 1 1/2 inches wide and 1/8 inch thick. A lot of filework and superb Damascus. This is a masterpiece.
