Description: More than any other maker, Roger Bergh finds some of the most spectacular materials anywhere. Here, the butt cap is formed from a fossil walrus ivory artifact, which was formerly part of a fishing weight from the mid 1800s. This particular piece weathered in such a way to create a very convincing cat's side profile. Roger did not modify the shape of the profile whatsoever. Between Fossil walrus ivories, Roger has sandwiched stabilized willow root with particularly fascinating grain. Nickel spacers.
The Damascus blade features his snake pattern mosaic Damascus with a firecracker edge, both forged from carbon steels. The edge holding will be excellent.
