Description: I have long been a fan of Roger Bergh's work. His control over Damascus and his skill at combining exotic materials set him apart as an artist. It is with great pleasure that I can present my favorite knife that I have seen by Roger to date.
The blade is a multibar composite forged from three separate Damascus bars. The middle is Roger's reptilian skin pattern Damascus, with octagonal scales throughout. This is surrounded by a firecracker pattern edge and spine. These have been forged from 15N20 and 20C carbon steels. These steels result in an optimal carbon ratio for a long lasting edge.
The S-guard has been forged to shape from mosaic Damascus and leads gracefully into the highly carved handle. Carved desert ironwood highlights the sculpted and carved mammoth ivory handle. Celtic knots form the first spacer. The head is carved with such precision as to have tremendous lifelike personality. The face appears natural and ready to speak. Surprisingly for such a heavily sculpted knife, the handle is extremely comfortable and fits perfectly into the hand.
As you would expect, the fit and finish are exceptional and the impact tremendous.
