Vintage Larry Brandstetter Custom Handcrafted Bowie

As far as I can gather, Larry Brandstetter made knives in the 80’s possible the 70’s also. His knives seem to be more like a work of art then functional knives. The few mentions I can find on him on the internet tend to be on knife forums and very few pictures of his knives.
This knife seems to be distinct of his style. It is a Bowie with a large (long) clip point blade. The handle is exotic wood with a Mother of Pearl inlay. The guard and bolster is cast nickle silver. And the blade is mirror polished.
