Description: Canadian bladesmith Mark Banfield created this exceptional, hand forged, one-of-a-kind clip point fighter!
The blade was forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel and differentially heat treated for a soft, supportive spine and an ultra-hard cutting edge. A 600 grit hand satin finish lends tremendous refinement.
The fittings are formed from antique wrought iron recovered from an 1800s era ship anchor. The natural wrought iron texture is revealed by acid etching, then heat bluing and light sanding so that the high points are silver and the low points are dark.
The carved handle is exceptional! Stabilized redwood burl is carved and textured for a sure, comfortable grip. The pommel is completed with a textured nickel silver end cap.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout!
