Description: Johan has created a spectacular innovation with this five bar san mai blade. The 15N20 core is surrounded by layers of 2140, pure nickel and 20C. As the blade was ground, this revealed the inner layers for a very dramatic effect. The fileworked spine also reveals the separate levels of metal. A rod of mosaic Damascus steel was forge welded through the blade, depicting a detailed palomino horse. The flats have been forge finished. All this has been heat colored to spectacular purples, greens, blues and hints of gold.
Ready to by handled either by you or your favorite maker. A great hunter/utility shape.
