Description: This is a very rare example of Don Hanson's work. Don is best known for his highly detailed folders, forged from his complex mosaic Damascus patterns. He has brought all his attention to detail making folders and created this exceptional fixed blade.
The mosaic Damascus on the blade and bolster contain a complex range of pictures -- showing tremendous control over the medium. The complexity of the Damascus pattern is matched by the exhibition grade North Sea fossil mammoth ivory. Intense blue tones predominate, with veins of cream, chocolate, and green. The feel in the hand and fit and finish are each exceptional.
