This is one of Mastersmith Jim Crowell's earlier Bowies, 1988 vintage. Obtaining any Crowell knife can be difficult and this is a rare opportunity to acquire one. Great premium Crowell forged Damascus all around, further enhanced by the fileworked hilt. Perfect ivory handle. Jim's distinctive "shooting star" mark on the tang.
