This Bowie has a 300  layer Damascus blade of 1080 & 15N20.  The look of a low layer on the spine and a high layer on the cutting edge is solely from the way that I beveled it as it's all the same billet.  The handle is  African Blackwood with a raised  checkered area..  The butt cap is a drop off from another Damascus billet turned  on edge.  The remainder of the fittings are 416.

This is  the  first time that I've done a  partial checkering this  way.  Let me know  what you think.

 

Thanks,

Gary

Gary I love bowies more than any other blade and always look forward to seeing your posts. Beautiful blade, especially the guard and buttcap. Handle checkering is really nice touch.

That's a nice looking knife Gary. I particularly like the handle. The checking is a nice touch.

Well, you inspired me to break out the checkering tools I've had for a few years. On blackwood scrap, no less.  It's a bit harder than it looks!:lol:  I can see it opening a new world of possibilities, though, so thanks!

You know, I think it would look pretty snazzy running down the sides of one of those ax or hawk handles
