Description: Canadian bladesmith Mark Banfield has created an exceptional, hand forged, one-of-a-kind fighter!
The blade was forged from 1075 carbon steel and was heat treated using a traditional Japanese technique whereby the spine is coated in clay, resulting in a soft, supportive spine with an ultra-hard edge. The resulting gently undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon. The blade was tempered twice. A 400 grit hand satin finish lends tremendous refinement. The guard was forged from mild steel and has been meticulously carved, textured, and hot blued. Polished alternating copper and bronze spacers separate the guard from the African blackwood handle. The wood been meticulously carved in an oak leaves motif. A central copper pin has been textured. The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath that also sports the oak leaves theme. Exceptional work throughout!
