Description: Mike Ball is a protégé of Jim Luman, renowned knifemaker and damascus maker. His designs are well thought out and feel excellent in the hand.
The blade has a tremendously complex damascus pattern. Intricate ribbons travel across the damascus surface -- making the blade grab attention from a distance and keep it upon closer examination.
The curly maple handle, which swells gently at the palm, is nicely formed for a comfortable, secure grip. Each side of the handle is inlaid with a 1943 steel penny, making for a great story starter. The 1943 silver colored penny is a wartime issue made of steel, and coated with zinc. During World War II, copper was so badly needed for the war effort (to make shell casings) that the U.S. penny was made out of steel that year. Alternating black and white fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Twist pattern damascus fittings surround the nicely sculpted wood. Nice work throughout!
