Jerry Fisk ` "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" Bowie and "Sunrise " Gamemaster

Here are two of Jerry's latest, both featuring historic materials and built upon themes very much in the minds of many Americans these days.

The first one is a spectacular large Bowie style knife featuring 24 kt gold inlay engraving and beautiful wood scales from a Horse Chestnut tree planted by George Washington, the first President of the United States (1789?97), the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He presided over the convention that drafted the current United States Constitution and during his lifetime was called the "father of his country". The layered steel 'Damascus' blade combines material from the NYC World Trade Center II building destroyed in an attack on September 11, 2001 and from the track of a tram destroyed in the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. The pattern suggests a bridge - a 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' (lyric by Paul Simon) referencing comfort and hope during times of unimaginable pain and suffering. This knife is part of Jerry's on-going National Living Treasure (NLT) series and is marked accordingly.



The second knife is an established Fisk design - the 'Gamemaster.' He used the same steels as in the Bowie above, but in his Dog Star pattern. In this case the pattern references powerful rays from the sun bringing light and hope following the darkness of disaster. The handle is sheep horn. The guard is engraved and includes copper inlays and a unique bridge-like motif. Jerry's signature on the engraving is in braille.
