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 such large, impressive Bowies.
The 7 3/4 inch blade is formed from three composite damascus bars. The two upper bars are a twist pattern. By forging the firecracker pattern edge from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels, Micke assures exceptional edge holding.
The damascus guard, is all forged from matching twist pattern damascus. The fossil oosic handle is formed from a single piece and forms a comfortable, secure grip. The handle is completed with an end cap formed from mammoth ivory. Accompanied by traditional Swedish leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
