Description: Micke Andersson's work is exceptional and innovative. The dramatic blade is forged combining a twist pattern Damascus core (forged from 15N20 and 20C carbon steels, sandwiched between layers of pure nickel, 15N20 carbon steel and a dramatic mosaic Damascus. The resulting blade will have exceptional edge holding, but has a mosaic pattern that is tremendously bold. Twist pattern Damascus fittings bring the weight back into the handle. Fossil walrus ivory is surrounded by highly convoluted desert ironwood. Black fiber spacers allow the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The pommel is finished off with desert ironwood. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
