Description: Swedish bladesmith Roger Bergh forges one-of-a-kind sole authorship creations that have a timeless beauty and high attention to detail. His ability to bring together rare materials truly sets him apart. 18k gold surrounds fossil Siberian mammoth ivory bark with deep blue tones. This is offset with cross-cut mammoth ivory, showing the dramatic grain structure hidden within mammoth ivory. The firestarter at the rear of the handle is an Inuit artifact created in the 1800s from fossil walrus ivory. The hole is from making fire from friction. It comes from St. Lawrence Island. The oak spacer and false tang was recovered from a shipwreck that sunk over 300 years ago and is very unique. This wood has a unique texture that is not found anywhere else.
The mosaic Damascus blade is a two-bar composite. The edge has been forged into a firecracker pattern from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels -- both picked for the edge holding ability. The central Damascus is a high contrast twist.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
