Description: The team of Tom Sterling and JP Higgins is a formidable force. Joe Higgins, who has been flint knapping knives for over 10 years, created the blade of this masterpiece with precision. This skill is matched in the detailed handle created by Tom Sterling, who has brought his attention to detail learned as an internationally known netsuke artist to this piece.
The pyrographed and polychromed holly handle is brought to detail, depicting fantastic butterflies formed from Celtic knots. Rosewood and ebony are used for the furniture. All carving in done in the highly detailed Japanese netsuke tradition brought to this team by Tom Sterling. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
