Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike many Nordic knifemakers, Micke believes very strongly in sole authorship, from forging the blade to shape, to creating the Damascus, to creating the sheath. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic.
The Damascus blade was forged from 15N20 and 20C carbon steels. Firecracker pattern edges surround a tightly twisted center core. Damascus front and rear fittings surround a mammoth ivory handle. Underlying cream tones are highlighted with caramel and chocolate sections. The double bolsters bring the weight back into the hand for a secure, reassuring hand-hold.
The sheath, created from dyed and natural toned masur birch burl, is exceptional. Four separate sections of birch burl nicely compliment each other and are highlighted with a mammoth ivory scale. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
