“August” Bowie – SOLD


By Nate “Tuna” Grant, Made by Tuna

This item was sold through a Buy It Now purchase.

The blade “August” is forged from 1084, 15N20, and Torpedo Blister steel from the Battleship Texas. My inspiration for the bowie came from a picture of the USS Texas from August 1942 when she was in camouflage. I tried to replicate a similar camo pattern by twisting the steel. The handle is engraved and anodized titanium, deck wood from the ship, and hammered and anodized titanium with mild steel fittings. I am absolutely honored to have been part of repurposing materials from the ship and creating a piece of art.
