Description: Sam Eddleman is a maker to watch. There's often an element of the fantastic in his knives, with stylistic references to both feudal Japan and the contemporary military. Sam made his first knife in 2008 -- as a knife collector he found that making knives himself was the intuitive next step.
Sam enjoys the look of a tanto style blade and this is evident in his interpretation of this traditional Japanese knife. The blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. A long swedge travels along the spine reinforcing the tip. A non-reflective acid wash finish gives the blade a great tactical look.
Rayskin is one of the toughest and most elegant materials available for tactical knife handles. Black rayskin is set beneath a black nylon wrap. Combined, these two materials ensure a secure, comfortable grip.
Excellent work throughout!
