Tom Morlan custom Hunting Bowie with unique hand-carved eagle head handle; original hand-crafted leather sheath included. VERY rare type in excellent overall condition.
Excellent quality one-of-a-kind hand-made custom Hunting Bowie by Tom Morlan; made circa 1998, wild boar’s tusk handle “eagle head” carving was done by master carver John Alward. Mr. Morlan of Hemet, California is known for his custom knives that are second to none. Most of his work is in private collections but some of his knives come up at auctions from time to time. We have a total of 4 custom knives by Tom Morlan – please see similar listings in the American Blades category.
A superb-quality exotic Hunting Bowie with the finely-carved tusk handle; the “screaming eagle” carving is simply fantastic in quality and design; the underside is autographed by the master carver quite simply: Alward. The eagle’s eyes are made of polished natural Tiger’s Eye stone; the end is finished with what looks like a polished fossil bone and red plastic spacers (minor age crack in the bone spacer). Elegant handguard is finely-cut solid bronze with attractive honey-brown patina. This Bowie is approximately 12-1/2” / 31.8 cm overall with the 8-1/8” / 20.5 cm long, 7 mm thick satin-polished blade. Custom-fit light-brown leather sheath is near-perfect with no signs of use or carry; the leather is soft and supple. The blade is etched on one side with the maker’s oval logo: Tom Morlan / TM / Hemet, Calif. and Morlan’s individual serial 657 on ricasso. The knife was never carried or used and it is RAZOR sharp; the tip is intact. This one of a kind Tom Morlan custom Hunting Bowie will make an excellent addition to any collection.
