Description: Canadian bladesmith Mark Banfield has a stunning design aesthetic, and his skill is more than equal to the task! This Nordic Hunter is an excellent example of Mark's work.
Mark began this piece by forging the blade to shape from 1084 carbon steel. The blade was edge quenched, resulting in a soft, supportive spine with an ultra-hard edge. The blade was hand sanded to a 320 grit satin finish.
The handle is formed from African Blackwood with a central spacer formed from moose antler for contrast. Thinner nickel silver spacers surround the antler. The handle is lovely to look at and delightful to hold!
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched, hand tooled custom leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout!
