Description: Silk Road is a masterpiece of a collaboration between renowned bladesmith Roger Bergh and his 28 year old son, Isak Bergh. The results of their combined efforts are virtually beyond compare.
The multi-bar Damascus blade incorporates a central mosaic Damascus bar surrounded by an explosion pattern edge and spine. The central bar has dramatic firecracker blasts. Carbon steels were used for exceptional edge holding.
The carved warthog tusk handle shows off fern-like scrolls and folds the evoke wind or shimmering silk. The three dimensional carving is visually exceptional and feels great in the hand. The bolster is formed from nickel silver and is finished off with textured sterling silver. The fit and finish throughout is spectacular.
