Description: This is among my favorite fixed blades of all time.
The blade is forged from a five bar san mai. The 15N20 care is surrounded by layers of 2140, pure nickel and 20C. As the blade was ground, this revealed the inner layers for a very dramatic effect. The fully fileworked spine also reveals the separate levels of metal. A rod of mosaic Damascus steel was forge welded through the blade.
The handle is sculpted from premium fossil mammoth ivory with a spacer created from 1000 year old oak. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
