Fully-custom Damascus Bowhunter.
3/16” handforged damascus from @costaknives with walnut burl from @halcyonforge and locally-harvested Elk antler. Custom brass elk pin from @mosaicknifepins and matching brass hardware. Brown leather sheath with ferro rod holder, tan stitching and matching brass hardware.
I included a matching ferro rod with a handle made from the same piece of walnut and elk, and brass thong tube. Also used the tip of the antler for some lanyard beads, never done anything like that before but it was a fun touch.
My only regret is that I was completely out of black paracord to match the bungie on the fire steel. Oh well.
This one is very much sold.
John McDowell, of Rapid City, S.D., keeps track of sales of antler bundles during the Elkfest antler auction Saturday at the Jackson Town Square. Pick up this week's Jackson Hole News&Guide for a story on the event, which generated more than $173,000. Photo: @bradlyjboner / @jhnewsandguide #jhnews#jacksonhole#wyoming#elkantler
