Description: Roger Bergh is one of the true masters and Crusader shows his work at its best.
The leaf shaped blade measures 22 1/2" and has tremendous impact. Detailed Damascus traverses the blade, immediately grabbing attention. The ricasso has been sculpted and holds Roger's mark set in 18k gold.
The guard was forged from a single piece of mosaic Damascus. The firecracker pattern has been deeply etched and sculpted. A front spacer features a mosaic Damascus snowflake. The stacked handle is formed from side cut fossil walrus ivory. A central spacer is created from antiqued mild steel and detailed with 18k gold beading. The handle is finished off with an antiqued hammered steel "helmet" -- also detailed with 18k gold beading. Roger's traditional Swedish sheath is formed from hard leather and tooled. A single seam moves down the center of the reverse side. The throat has been decorated with antiqued hammered steel to match the "helmet". It too is detailed with 18k gold beading.
