Description: This exceptional knife has been in a single collection since it was first made by Johan in the spring of 2002. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. It has never been used to cut and by all appearances, it could have been made yesterday.
Johan began by forging the complex damascus blade. He combined two separate bars of damascus: "Two Headed Moose" (created by accordioning his moose pattern) and "Firecracker" patterns. The Damascus is well-etched and vividly colored, using a technique that he has spent years developing. He continues to be the only maker in the world able to accomplish these colors.
Front and rear damascus guards are also heat colored. They surround a pristine mammoth ivory handle. Red fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Exceptional work throughout!
