That gorgeous ivory was definitely put to very good use. Terrific bowie!

WOW!! That is incredible John, and i'm sure it is even more exquisite when holding it!
The way the damascus is matched to the crackle pattern in the ivory looks superb.
Wow.... just an outstanding piece

Looks great John.
That's a beautiful knife and the Ivory is really nice.

I've added the photos of Paul Long's fantastic sheath for this one.
The overlay is a Golden Lizard to accent the Mammoth Crackle, and the tooling carries out the "Rosebud" theme of the blade's Damascus.
Paul's original "papoose" holds the Damascus tipped "Take-down" tool.
Paul done it proud!

Such a Great knife. I wish I could afford to be a collector of this level of knife.
