    W2 and Oosik Bowie


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hello BF,

    Here's a big Bowie knife I'm just finishing that I hope someone will really enjoy.

    It's 15.5" long with a 10" blade of W2 carbon steel. Blade is double ground, differentially heat treated with clay for nice temper line and acid etched for patina.
    The guard, ferrules, pommel and pommel nut are all raindrop Damascus and the file worked spacer is of 15n20 high nickel steel. The handle is a great piece of fossilized Oosik from Mark Knapp and has been professionally stabilized by WSSI. The sheath is Wickett and Craig 10 oz leather with a beltloop.

    I'm asking WITHDRAWN. I accept check, MO, or Paypal. Please let me know if you have further questions.
    Thanks for looking.

    Hello and thanks Bhauer. It's 1/4" thick at the ricasso. Still quite light and quick in the hand after the
    double grind.

    Thanks.

    Hi David, very nice knife, just love everything about it.
    I am from Australia and was wondering if you would consider shipping it here and if so how much would it be, also you mentioned that the blade was double ground, was just wondering if that meant it has a cutting edge on either side like a dagger, as they would not allow that into Australia, if its only a false edge that will be fine.
    Anyway please let me know as I am interested in your work, thanks for your time, much appreciated.

    AMAZING! and a good price too considering how hard it is(no pun intended) to get a hold of an Oosik(all pun intended))

    Hi JFH333, it's a false edge on top. Message sent.
