Norm Bardsley was one of the legendary knife makers in the upper echelon of
knife makers. He passed away around 7-8 years ago. He was thought of as one
of the most innovative makers as he only made pieces ONE time and that was
it. All were free hand made, no machines.
He forged his own Damascus. This is a one of a kind set and labeled as such
on the back of the elk hide centerpiece and signed by Norm. The 2 Hawks are
7.5"OAL, handles are Desert Ironwood and Real Elephant Ivory. The tassels on
each of the hawks are turkey beard. The heads are approx. 3 1/4" in length
and sharpened heads are 1". Bardsley is stamped on the heads of both hawks
as shown. The centerpiece is tanned elk hide with real beads embroidered in
the middle of the centerpiece. It is approximately 6.5" in diameter. Comes
with the display case shown with key lock.
I paid a lot of this and will offer it for far less than I paid!
