Description: By bringing together materials not found elsewhere, Roger creates knives captivate the imagination. The handle is formed from oak recovered from a shipwreck that sunk over 300 years ago. The wood is extremely stable and has a grain structure that I have seen nowhere else. This is offset by stabilized and green dyed maple that offsets the darkened oak.
The blade is a forged three bar composite with a firecracker pattern edge, and a snakeskin pattern body, separated by a bar of pure wrought iron. The effect is spectacular.
The half horn sheath is Roger's interpretation of the Sami styled sheaths of Northern Sweden. It, too, is sculpted from sunken oak and has a dark green maple inlay surrounded by sterling silver inlays.
