200mm Clip Point Bowie in RWL-34 with Ringed Gidgee
This knife is a unique handmade clip point Bowie with a 200mm cutting edge. The blade is handmade from RWL-34, a premium powder metallurgy stainless steel developed by Damasteel for its high hardness and toughness combined with its ability to hold an extremely keen edge.
This blade has been heat treated with a cryogenic cycle in liquid nitrogen to a final tested hardness of 61.5hrc. It has been flat ground to create an extremely robust and sharp cutting edge. The primary bevels and clip point have been finished with an 800g satin hand rubbed finish. The edge has been sharped to 4k on whetstones.
The knife has my take on a Bowie style hidden tang with 416 stainless steel guard, black G10 spacer and a stunning 'bubbly' figured Ringed Gidgee handle. The handle combines facets and rounded belly to sit comfortably in the palm of the hand. The knife weighs a total of 241g, ensuring lightweight high performance.
This knife has black vegetable tan leather sheath that is made for right handed carry.
