Description: This fighter is all business, hand forged from W2 carbon steel 2" square stock then carefully heat treated using a temperature controlled oven. The blade was clay coated during heat treating to create the very unique and bold hamon line (differential heat treatment line) and the top clip is sharpened.
The fileworked guard, spacer and escutcheon are all made from matching mosaic damascus and the handle is a uniquely figured piece of desert ironwood with beautiful streaks of orange and black.
The Ironwood Fighter comes with a custom fitted, hand sewn and hand tooled leather sheath. Excellent work throughout.
