Deftly balancing color, texture, strength, grace and raw cutting power, Timber Wolf’s “Awakening” Bowie Knife is nothing short of the fixed blade design and craftsmanship at its peak. It’s a rare treat for the eyes and demands attention when showcased in a collection or solo. Among the most enrapturing of the numerous visual highlights: the stunning Damascus steel blade. And this is no ordinary Damascus; Timber Wolf's master bladesmiths carefully, painstakingly and repeatedly fold multiple distinct layers of steel, hammering each fold deliberately and precisely to create a vibrant, visually arresting feather pattern. It's a process that often requires days to complete and no less than years of blade forging experience. Not to mention raw talent - the Awakening's feather patterned Damascus is skilfully off limits to all but the most seasoned smiths. The vividly contrasting folds in the Damascus steel glint and gleam under light, highlighting the rich, showy patterning. A wedding of extreme contrasts but nothing less than a match made in bladecraft heaven, the feathered Damascus steel is paired with a brilliant white genuine bone handle. The bone radiates with an almost marble-like glow. A lone, intricately patterned rosette rests in the center - a subtle, yet fitting finishing touch to this rare masterwork. For all its undeniable beauty, the Awakening is more than just a pretty face. With its expertly honed, razor sharp blade edge and careful, quality craftsmanship, this full tang beast of a bowie effortlessly slices and cleaves its way through even the toughest cutting jobs – field dressing, skinning, cutting branches and much more. Its impeccable weight distribution and ergonomic handle design give the Awakening a balanced, solid feel that’s second to none - a pleasure to wield for even hours at a time. Built to last and protected by the included genuine leather sheath, with proper care the Awakening can be your go-to fixed-blade for a lifetime and beyond, making it an outstanding family heirloom. Timber Wolf’s Awakening Bowie Knife is pure artistry in Damascus steel and bone. Enough said.
