Description: Firebrand is a masterpiece and among the most dramatic knives that I have encountered. The blade features a unique Damascus pattern Bill developed that he calls 'Dragon's Breath". The highly complex mosaic Damascus pattern displays flames traveling across the blade. Showing the Japanese influence that has been a hallmark of Bill's work in 2006, a habaki is formed from mokume gane. The mokume incorporates Damascene layers forged from shakudo (a mixture of gold and copper) along with silver. The resulting Mokume gane has bold black and silver patterns. The same material has been used for the pommel and ferrule. The pre-ban elephant ivory handle has been meticulously hand fluted and set with silver twisted wire. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
