Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. Unlike many Nordic knifemakers, Michael believes very strongly in sole authorship, from forging the blade to shape, to creating the Damascus, to sewing the sheath. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic. Micke is one of the few Swedish makers to make large, impressive Bowies.
The five bar composite Damascus blade is formed from four bars of twist pattern Damascus set in opposing directions and a firecracker pattern edge bar. The Damascus was forged from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels for exceptional edge holding. The exceptional blade leads into the oval Damascus guard. Damascus fittings surround the stabilized giraffe bone handle. The knife is extremely comfortable when held and has perfect balance and a nice heft. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
