Description: The blade is handsome Bird's Eye pattern Damascus with a fileworked spine. By using three different steels, rather than two, Herb is able to create three very distinct color tones in his Damascus, for an excellent effect. The vine pattern filework continues on the cleanly finished nickel silver guard. The joint between the blade and the guard is very clean and it is a neat visual effect to see the blade reflect in the guard. The natural colored California buckeye spacer has a distinctive grain. The handle fits very comfortably in a large hand.
