Description: Johan Gustafsson is famed for creating some of the most detailed damascus found anywhere -- and this is an exceptional example of his work.
This drop-point blade was forged to shape from two separate bars of Johan's explosion pattern damascus. The allowed him to have contrasting directions to his explosions within the steel. An insert of a highly complex Asian dragon was then forged directly into the blade. To accomplish this effect, a mosaic damascus rod depicting the dragon at the center was forge-welded through the blade. Johan has spent years developing a complex heat coloring technique to bring out colors rarely, if ever, found in other makers' work. This blade has been heat colored to spectacular purples, greens, blues and hints of gold. Ready to by handled either by you or your favorite maker. A great hunter/utility shape.
