Shawn McIntyre, M.S. Damascus & Desert Ironwood Bowie Knife, Leather Sheath (SOLD)
Shawn McIntyre has been living and working in Melbourne, Australia with is wife, Amanda, since 1999. Shawn earned his ABS Mastersmith in 2008, and won the B.R. Hughes award for his Quillon Dagger. He has won multiple awards for his work in both the United States and Australia. His knives have been featured in Blade Magazine, Knives Illustrated and Knife World, just to name a select few. After a brief one year hiatus from knifemaking due to a spinal injury, Shawn came back with a vengeance in 2014, and has been doing some of the best work he has ever done.
This Damascus Bowie knife is indicative of Shawn's outstanding work, and his attention to design, detail, and fit and finish. Great ergonomics and balance - the perfect combination. Shawn forged the blade from 1084 and 15N20 steels, and built the knife of hidden tang construction. The handle is a beautiful chunk of dark, deeply figured Desert Ironwood. All the fittings - guard, collar (spacer) and butt cap - are all Damascus, as well. The knife was previously owned by another Mastersmith. It is in excellent condition. It has never been used, carried or sharpened. Comes with a brown frog button, tooled leather sheath, also made by Shawn.
