Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike many Nordic knifemakers, Michael believes very strongly in sole authorship, from forging the blade to shape, to creating the Damascus, to sewing the sheath. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic.
The three bar composite mosaic Damascus blade is formed from a central stars pattern mosaic Damascus bar, surrounded by a firecracker pattern edge and spine. The firecracker edge is forged from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels for exceptional edge holding. Other Damascus throughout the knife utilizes mild steel and pure nickel in addition to 15N20 and 20C.
The majestic blade leads into the Damascus guard. A textured sterling silver plate forms the front of the guard. Sterling silver pins are used throughout. The fossil mammoth bark scales are exceptional. Deep blue rivers move across a cream background. The full tang has been fileworked at the top. A long guard brings the weight back into the hand for a secure, reassuring hand-hold. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
