4 Steel Double Twist Bowie

I've been experimenting with 52100 in my Damascus billets because I really like the way it stands out. Finding the right combination to get it right is a challenge. This one was forge from 4 (1084), 3 (52100), 1 (15n20), 1 (Nicholson file). The file/15n20 was put on the side of the billet that would be the outside of the first fold to keep the 52100 from ever touching itself. The billet was folded several times, twisted, folded back on itself and forged to shape. The handle was supplied by the customer, a memento from the hunt.
I should say that it's hand forged. Makes things interesting.
