Important Notice: We purchased and installed this classified ads software because we thought it would be a genuine enhancement to the GT classified ads system. I still believe it is a far better alternative for a classified ads section than the forum software, but people just don't seem to agree. I had hoped that people would take to the system and see its benefits after having used it for a while, but that hasn't happened.

So, I am going to admit defeat and move the classified ads section back onto the old message board forums. Posting permissions have been turned off in this software and the old classified ads forums have been reactivated. We will leave this software up through 27 June, 2014, so that people can refer to the old ads. Please place all new ads in the classified ads forums. They can be found on GT's forums index, below the Armory section. Here is a direct link to that area: The Want Ads Forums.

In the coming weeks, we will be adding some features to the classified ads forums that will make them better suited for that purpose, while keeping the features and functionality of that system that people have shown they want.

Please keep in mind that all forum rules apply to the classified ads threads. Additionally, do not post in someone's ad to haggle or arrange a deal. Please contact them directly to negotiate. Also, if you think you know where someone can get the advertised item cheaper, or you think the person is charging too much, or you don't like the product or seller, etc..., please keep it to yourself. Posting such things in someone else's classified ad thread is not allowed. If you see anyone violating the posting rules, or know of or suspect that there is a problem with a post or thread, please report the thread or post. Thanks and enjoy the new/old system.

Description: This is a BEAUTIFUL custom-made Damascus Bowie Knife that is over 13 inches long; with a blade that is over 8 inches long. This knife was designed by Emanuele, from Phontenova RM Italy. There is absolutely no other knife like this; Emanuele custom makes this only one piece. The heavy duty blade, going all the way inside the handle without any joint or weld, is rock solid.

Emanuele designed and hand-forged the blade of this knife with 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels. The beautiful Damascus blade of the Bowie is the result of hours and hours of forging. Not many custom makers can keep such pattern of layers upon layers flowing all the way to the edge of the blade, which creates a saw-blade effect at microscopic level, allowing the blade to keep cutting while other blades have dulled. Emanuele hand-forged the blade of this knife with 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steel true layers (512). Blade was given excellent heat treatment and Rockwell hardness of the blade along its edge is 59 and along the spine is 42-45. The thick blade has fantastic hand grinds on both sides with top side left with a false edges. Spine of this blade has beautiful file work.

The Bowie handle is an incredible work of art. It is made of Fossil Giraffe bone, Bull Horn, Burl wood, and Damascus with brass and fiber spacers. Bowie is complimented with a beautiful hand-forged Damascus guard and butt cap.

The leather sheath is totally hand-tooled and sewn. Extra thick leather and strong stitching make this sheath robust which can withstand years of rough and tough use. The sheath can be worn on belt.
