Robert Eggerling was experimenting with Mosiac Damascus Forging and decided that he hasn't seen any made with triangular shapes so he made an equilateral triangle die for his hydraulic press and went to town experimenting.

He first made some layer damascus billets with 1084 and sheets of thin nickle. He cut those into pieces that would fit into the triangular die without squeezing over when pressed into the triangular die. After pressing several pieces into shape they were cut into equal lengths, ground clean, and re-assembled as shown in the pattern below. Pieces of a bit thicker sheet nickle were inserted between each triangular block and the forge welded together. Blocks were the re-forged into triangular shapes and again forge welded together in this pattern. It was then drawn down to 1.25" x 6" and can be sawn into slices for knife blades.

We will have some available at the 2021 Blade Show in Atlanta June 4-6.

Dear Robert,

What a year! Despite the challenging environment we have been busy here at Cabot and are blessed to have work that keeps our team moving forward. We have not experienced any Coronavirus and for that we are grateful. Each day we have stayed focused on our mission to craft the finest 100% American Made pistols.

Our Cabot OAK (one-of-a-kind) program continues to provide us with challenging commissioned work. These builds represent out most exclusive work and generally involve rare materials along with elevated finished techniques. Two examples are the Voyager 1911 and The Commander King pistol which we added to the OAK Collection page today. To see more of these pistols please click on their respective names.

The Voyager 1911

Mankind has always dreamed of exploring time. Our past holds rich history and cherished memories. The future, a promise of an exciting unknown. Cabot's Voyager 1911 represents the apex of just such a journey - Billions of years in the making - a stunning pistol truly ahead of its time. Eons ago, the now-exquisitely finished material used for the Voyager's grips was created. The meteorite grips are the culmination of Cabot's knowledge on finishing techniques that draw out both the vibrant colors and the spectacular crystalline Widmanstätten pattern.

The Commander King 1911

An exclusive commission from Cabot Guns featuring custom serial number: DAMASCUS001

Alexander the Great conquered Damascus in 333 BC. The young emperor, widely recognized as the greatest commander king in history, undefeated in battle, forged a kingdom that spanned cultures and continents.

Roughly 1,200 years after Alexander added the former Aramaic kingdom to his historic list of conquests, the first renowned “Damascus Steel” swords were made. Although the ancient process used to forge the original Damascus steel has been lost in the mists of time, modern-day craftsmen—including world-renowned master blacksmith Robert Eggerling—have recaptured much of the exacting art of its creation.

The Cabot Commander King is a classic Commander-size pistol and, in that format, likely the finest Commander-style 1911 we have ever crafted.

The Commander King’s slide, trigger, and grips were shaped and finished from an exquisite block of Eggerling’s Mosaic Damascus and the complexity of the pattern is truly striking. Befitting this one-of-a-kind 1911, it is chambered in the Lord's caliber, .45 ACP, with an embedded diamond front sight that sparkles enticingly, both beautiful and functional.

2,400 years after Alexander built his empire, we believe this Cabot 1911 is worthy of the title: Commander King.

We have this exquisite Damascus crafted by renowned Mast Blacksmith Robert Eggerling. Those who know, know. Eggerling is one of the most heralded artisans of Damascus in the world. The billets shown above are commissioned materials that were over a year in the making and are large enough to create two pistols with slides AND frames in this extraordinary material. Only two will ever exist and we have never before had the possibility of crafting a full Eggerling Damascus pistol. If you are interested in commissioning one or both of these Eggerling Damascus pistols, now is your opportunity. The cost for each pistol is approximately $50,000 and can vary depending on the finish details which we will develop together.
