Description: Sam Eddleman is an up-and-coming maker to watch. There's often an element of the fantastic in his knives, with stylistic references to both feudal Japan and the contemporary military. Sam made his first knife in 2008 -- as a knife collector he found that making knives himself was the intuitive next step.
Sam's work is definitely holding its own against the big names in this little dashi! Sam enjoys the look of a tanto style blade and this is evident in his interpretation of this traditional Japanese knife. The single bevel blade is made from 154CM stainless steel, hardened to 59-60 Hrc, with a small secondary bevel for a stronger edge. The clean grind line is accentuated by mirror polishing the grinds and hand satin finishing the flats.
Rayskin is one of the toughest and most elegant materials available for tactical knife handles. The bright sapphire blue rayskin provides a stunning contrast set beneath black nylon wrap. Combined, these two materials ensure a secure, comfortable grip. Excellent work throughout!
