Description: Billy Bob Sowell of Iron Horse Forge, earned his Master Smith stamp back in 2009 and currently lives in Georgia. He worked as a locomotive engineer for Norfolk Southern Railroad for 39 years and before that was a Poseidon Missile tech on a nuclear submarine. Since childhood, knives were a fascination of his.
Billy Bob learned from some of the best in the industry. Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley taught him to make damascus and folders. Mastersmith Jim Batson taught him to make Bowies. Mastersmith Don Fogg taught him just about everything else … from heat treating to finishing. He even took Fogg’s sword class at Campbell Folk School and went to about every hammer-in that he could over the years, learning from countless presenters who helped him along the way.
Billy Bob won the award for “Best Antique Bowie by an ABS Journeyman Smith” three years in a row – making him the only maker to have won three times.
This drop point hunter is a tremendous example of his work. It will be at home in any collection, but will perform exceptionally well in the field. The blade was forged to shape from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The distal tapered blade is perfectly balanced. This is a knife that will feel very comfortable used for hours out in the wilds.
The guard is formed from satin finished stainless steel. It meets perfectly to both blade and mortised tang stag scales. The stag is well balanced from side to side and has just enough natural texture to provide a very comfortable, secure grip.
The knife is accompanied by a hand sewn pouch style shark skin sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
