The flagship model of Svord founder Bryan Baker's custom line, the Von Tempsky Forest Bowie is a big knife with a lot of presence! Inspired by the knives that Gustavus Ferdinand von Tempsky issued his Forest Rangers during the New Zealand Wars. Used for everything from clearing tracks through bush, digging defensive positions, cutting fire wood and general use about camp, these bowies were the men's most valued piece of equipment.
This modern rendition makes use of Svord's proprietary heat treatment and high carbon steel for tremendous shock resistance and edge retention under hard use, and features a beautiful mahogany handle affixed with brass Loveless-style bolts. The heavy-duty leather sheath features brass rivet reinforcement at the throat, and an old-fashioned button stud closure on the retention strap.
All Svord Custom Series knives feature a lifetime guarantee by the manufacturer against breakage!
