Description: Top Brass is a slim Nordic style fighter/utility with a quick and light feeling in the hand. This knife features a truncated hexagon and diamond theme that is repeated throughout. The sheath is formed from big leaf maple burl and brass and has a fileworked insert that runs the length of the sheath and lines up with a brass backbar inlaid in the handle. The spacers have been fileworked with an attention to detail reflecting the complex Damascus pattern in the two bar Damascus blade by Swedish bladesmith Mattias Styrefors. The brass top of the sheath is lined and makes a secure click fit when the knife is inserted in the sheath. Metalwork has been finished on the knife and sheath to a 600 grit satin for easy maintenance and usability. Exceptional work throughout.
