Description: Swedish Micke Andersson is the protégé of Roger Bergh. Centaur shows off his work at its best.
The 20 2/3" blade was forged to shape from Micke's own Damascus. Five separate Damascus bars were first forged individually, then combined. The edge bard are forged from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels. They are a detailed firecracker pattern. These surround opposing twist pattern bars. The central fuller creates a truly dramatic blade.
The guard and pommel were forged from twist pattern Damascus and have been sculpted. The central section of the handle is formed from fossil mammoth ivory and desert ironwood. Micke's traditional Swedish sheath is wood lined. The hard leather and tooled. A single seam moves down the center of the reverse side. Exceptional work throughout.
