Description: Dinosaur shows the culmination of Roger Bergh's efforts into a true masterpiece.
The multibar mosaic Damascus blade was forged by Roger from 15N20 and 20C carbon steels. A bar of firecracker pattern Damascus forms the central bar of the blade. This is surrounded by twisted Damascus. Finally, linear patterns make up the cutting edge. The ricasso has been highly sculpted and culminates in a section of dinosaur bone set in sterling silver.
The guard was forged from a single piece of Damascus. Sculpting breaks through layers of steel, revealing a complex pattern. A central firecracker pattern spine travels through the side of the handle and is surrounded by deep caramel toned fossil walrus ivory. The handle is finished off with a Damascus pommel and a crosscut section of fossil walrus ivory revealing the inner dentine.
Roger's traditional Swedish sheath is formed from hard leather and tooled. A single seam moves down the center of the reverse side. The tip has been decorated with antiqued hammered steel.
Exceptional work throughout.
