Blade: 7 bar composite Damascus. The center is composed of three bars of 80-layer twist bordered by two thin three-layer stripes with a "Firecracker" pattern edge. All Damascus has been forged from 15N20 and 1870 Uddeholm carbon steels
Bolster: Damascus guard forged from 15N20 and 1870 Uddeholm carbon steels with a walrus ivory fitting
Handle: Walrus ivory artifact from the late 1800's that was most likely a root pick handle with sunken oak spacer
Sheath: Hand tooled leather
Description: This impressive piece comes with a stand constructed of a mammoth rib and reindeer fossil with a sunken oak base. This oak, also used as the handle spacer was recovered from a 300 year old shipwreck. The composite Damascus blade is clearly etched in three patterns, showing tremendous control. Composite Damascus is one of the most difficult techniques of steel and Roger is a true master. The 80-layer twist is almost lace-like in appearance. The handle fits comfortably in the hand, and is well suited to a large hand.
