Like the noble animal to which it pays homage, the Bison Gorge Bowie is big, powerful and bold. It boasts a hefty 10" clip point blade hand forged from gorgeous Damascus steel. The storied metal's whirlwind of waves, undulations and swirls is the result of an ancient smithing technique that involves painstakingly folding and hammering red hot steel time and again for sometimes days on end. Finally, the folded steel blank is acid etched to highlight the hundreds - even thousands - of contrasting lines that blanket the blade. The centuries old process is primitive and can only be carried out by careful, skilled hands. No computerized robots. No mechanization at all in fact. The blade is wed to a tastefully simple, onyx-black buffalo horn handle, polished to a mirror shine and accented with brass pins, guards and spacers. Robust but well balanced, the Bison Gorge Bowie is truly a pleasure to wield, no matter the cutting job. The stunning Damascus blade is housed in a rugged genuine leather belt sheath that affords maximum protection and a handsome finishing touch to the entire ensemble. From the earthy smell of the leather to the light oil coat on the blade, the Bison Gorge Bowie is positively tactile and demands to be grasped and put to work. Of course its understated rustic beauty makes it a fine standout in any knife collection, as well. Experience the Bison Gorge Bowie for yourself. You'll be glad you did.
