Description: Roger Bergh's knives have a unique presence rarely found in the work of other makers. The combination of his exceptional Damascus with his ability to incorporate rare materials.
The handle is formed from an artifact fishing weight, most likely dating back to the early or middle 1800s. During this time in Alaska, walrus ivory was often used for daily use items ranging from fire starters, to sled runners and fishing weights. The ancient ivory used for this handle was a fishing weight from this time period. The hole toward the pommel is original and was the spot where it was tied with rope. The original carving by Isak Bergh (Roger's 27 year old son) on this spectacular knife evokes waves on the open sea. Collaborations between Isak and Roger have raised both makers' work to a new level.
The multi-bar Damascus blade incorporates a central mosaic Damascus bar surrounded by a twist pattern edge and spine. Carbon steels were used for exceptional edge holding. The bolster is formed from a bold twist pattern Damascus matching the edge and spine bars. The fit and finish, as you would expect from a maker of Roger's fame, is spectacular.
