Description: Brazilian bladesmith Luciano Dorneles is perhaps best known for his integral knives. The steel on the knife is forged from a single billet of Damascus steel, rather than having the bolsters created from separate pieces of metal. This technique shows tremendous skill and ingenuity. On a Damascus knife, this is a particularly dramatic effect because the Damascus of the blade continues into the bolster and tang seamlessly. The twist pattern blade is very bold and immediately grabs attention.
Stag surrounds an enclosed tang and are finished off with a Damascus butt cap. This results in an optimal balance in the hand. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
