Description: This set is a beautiful pair: the stag handles have a look that matches the raindrop pattern perfectly. The feel has to be experienced to be appreciated. The tangs of both knives are continuous and are drilled and threaded to the nickel silver pommels. This makes the handles and blades mate together as one for superior strength and results in a tight seal against moisture.
The display case has a dramatic appearance that helps to release the beauty of these knives. Al the work, from forging the Damascus to heat treating the blade and constructing the case was performed by Bill.
