Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike many Nordic knifemakers, Michael believes very strongly in sole authorship, from forging the blade to shape, to creating the Damascus, to forming the sheath. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic.
The three bar composite mosaic Damascus blade is heat colored to a deep black. A central bar show mirror polished Damascus ribbons moving across a matt black background. The edge and spine are a firecracker pattern forged from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels for exceptional edge holding.
The fittings are formed from mild steel and have also been hot colored to a deep, mirror polished black. The front and rear "bolsters" surround exhibition grade blue toned fossil mammoth ivory. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
