Description: Johan's work is among the best in the world. Best known for his folders, his fixed blades are rare and quite cherished. The two bar composite mosaic Damascus blade shows off a complex pattern. The edge bar is an explosion pattern Damascus forged from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels and assures a keen, long lasting edge. The spine has been fileworked.
The handle is forged from desert ironwood burl with a dramatic swirling grain pattern. Mammoth ivory escutcheon are inlaid on each side. A section of inner ancient walrus ivory core is surrounded by pewter spacers. Side cut mammoth ivory forms a bolster that shows off the dramatic inner grain lines of the ivory. Accompanied by a traditional leather sheath with silver detailing. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
