Description: This exceptional boxed knife set is the handiwork of bladesmith Fred Ott. The knife combines Japanese and Persian influences into a dramatic presentation. Fred made this knife back in 2012 and it has been in a single private collection. It is in new condition and by all appearances, Fred could have made it yesterday.
The hand forged damascus blade combines 1080, O1, and 15N20 carbon steels for a long lasting edge. The damascus immediately grabs attention. The blade is distal tapered and features a long clip for optimal balance.
The fittings are antiqued and textured bronze. The handle is formed from a single piece of exhibition grade desert ironwood. The handle is seated using a single bamboo pin. This technique, which is used to construct Japanese katana, allows the piece to be easily taken apart for cleaning and maintenance. A mekugi-nuki is used to push the tapered bamboo pin out.
The knife is accompanied by a handmade presentation case formed from worm hole maple. The combination of the box and knife makes for a dramatic combination. An exceptional addition to any collection!
