Foster / Broadwell Collaboration
This unique bowie was a collaboration between myself and knifemaker David Broadwell. A customer asked us to both collaborate on one knife, commissioned by him to get the most our of our respective areas of expertise.
I forged and heat treated the Laminated steel blade and made the Damascus used in the guard and the sheath stud. David carved and finished the blade, fittings and the Hawaiian Koa handle. I made the sheath for the finished knife and carved it with a scroll pattern that seemed appropriate for the knife.
The knife was pictured on the cover of Knives 2011.
