A dazzling mashup of textures and tones, Timber Wolf's "Prairie Moon" Bowie weds Damascus steel's maelstrom of contrasting lines and swirls with the tranquil natural grain of exotic camel bone. The result is a fixed blade knife that beams brighter than the rest, demanding attention and exuding rustic charm. But make no mistake - the Prairie Moon is much more than just a pretty face. It's impressively sized and built like a rock - born to conquer the wildest lands and the toughest cutting jobs. The Damascus steel blade is an imposing 9 1/2" and boasts an edge that's carefully honed to razor sharp, right out of the box. Like the knife itself, the Prairie Moon's Damascus steel is an eclectic mixture of contrasting materials - namely, two distinct grades of high carbon steel. After firing the divergent steels at temperatures exceeding 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit, master bladesmiths painstakingly fold and hammer-weld the molten metals together - repeatedly, sometimes for days on end. After much blood, sweat and tears, the bonds between the steels are rendered indivisible, and the blank becomes a single piece of rugged, resilient steel - revered the world over as one-of-a-kind "Damascus" steel. A final acid etching highlights the mesmerizing tempest of contrasting waves and ripples formed by the layered steels. It's a slow, laborious process - but one that's well worth the trouble, as each Prairie Moon Damascus blade is rugged and tenacious, subtly flexible and never brittle. Like a fingerprint, the patterning on each blade is wholly unique. Likewise, the raw grain of the camel bone handle is all-natural and one-of-a-kind. Expert artisans carefully dye, cure and stabilize the alluring bone, imparting it with a regal appearance and durability to last a lifetime. Despite its colossal 14 3/4" length, the Prairie Moon is exceptionally well-balanced and an all-around pleasure to wield. The steel sub-hilt and generous finger choils afford maximum control, making the Prairie Moon ideal for not only the big jobs, but fine, delicate tasks, as well. Timber Wolf's "Prairie Moon" Bowie is the epitome of unsullied beauty and raw, unbridled ruggedness. Grasping this exceptional knife is like trekking through a vast, windswept prairie on a calm, moonlit night - every strand of grass bathed in a tranquil golden glow. Simply put, wielding the Prairie Moon is a genuine pleasure and practically surreal; it defies description and is something you have to experience for yourself to fully appreciate. From open prairie to towering peak, the world is yours to conquer with Timber Wolf's Prairie Moon Bowie Knife.
