I was the winner of this raffle in 2012, it included this wonderful bowie, a John Cohea sheath and stand and a book documenting the process.

From J’s website: This Bowie was built as a benefit piece for the March of Dimes. The damascus blade is 11" and done in a canister weld with high carbon powder steel and contrasting "marching arrows" in the steel and forge marked/acid soaked flats. The guard is wrought iron with matching "arrow" tips. The handle is a Sambar Stag crown with a throat of high contrast laminate damascus with a black spacer and secured with a piened/etched carbon steel pin. The knife comes with a rawhide sheath with antler and rattlesnake accents by John Cohea.

This is a picture of the knife as it appeared on J.'s website.


This is how it looks today. It is unused, never sharpened, and never stored in sheath. Edge is perfect.
