Comments:We suppose that if any maker of fixed-blades is a legend Buster Warenski would qualify. Mentor to Steve Johnson and husband of Master Engraver Julie Warenski, Buster has created some of the most lavish, spectacular and flawless fixed-blade ever produced in any time or any place, and this lovely piece is no exception. With a gorgeous handle of presentation-grade Ebony, this Searles Bowie is a showcase of the fixed-blade makers art.

Both guard and pommel are artfully shaped and covered with exquisite engraving by Buster himself, who used just the right amount of gold to set off this masterpiece! Warenski Searles Bowies are extremely rare, and this is the only one we've seen for sale in the last five years!

This piece would be a magnificent addition to any collection and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Another master knife by two masters of knife making! Buster and Lynton will be sorely missed.

The workmanship of his knives pretty much spoke for itself. He could make just about any fixed blade, folder or sword, and make it extremely well, though it is his art daggers for which he is most remembered. He taught himself how to engrave and although he may not have been the best engraver, the early examples of his engraving held up among other knives of the time. But then it always seemed that Buster found a way to make his knives the best—and one way was marrying Julie, who learned how to engrave and became one of the best, lending her talents to Buster’s knives and making them even more fabulous. (Julie Warenski-Erickson continues to engrave today and is married to knifemaker Curt Erickson.)
