Description: Roger Bergh has a sense of creativity and design that is rarely found on other makers' work and in Swans and Stars, his skill is undeniable. The handle has been sculpted, both for appearance and to create a tremendous fit in the hand. The stacked wood handle shows off differing grain structures from textured black buffalo horn to mammoth bone, stabilized birch and maple, as well as crosscut sections of fossil walrus and mammoth ivories.
A master at the forge, Roger has created a three bar composite blade with complex Damascus patterns throughout. Swans and stars move across the center bar and are surrounded by linear bars at the spine and cutting edge. The choice of steels assures a long lasting, easy to maintain edge.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
