Description: I have long been a fan of Roger Bergh's work. His control over Damascus and his skill at combining exotic materials set him apart as an artist. It is with great pleasure that I can present one of the true masterpieces created by Roger. Duality has been held in a private collection since it was sold by us in 2004 and has been meticulously cared for.
The blade is a multi-bar composite forged from three separate damascus bars. The center bar has tremendous complexity and detail, utilizing pure nickel for high contrast. The spine and edge bars are a firecracker pattern forged from 15N20 and 20C carbon steels. These steels result in an optimal carbon ratio for a long lasting edge.
A man's face is carved into the warthog tusk in incredible detail. The carving was done by Isak Bergh. The face has tremendous lifelike personality, with a natural appearance and long flowing hair. A natural check in the fossil warthog tusk lends the name to this exquisite knife. The two sides of the face each have their distinct personalities. A crosscut section of mammoth ivory forms the center of the handle. The natural grain structure of the mammoth ivory is clearly apparent and produces a very dramatic appearance. Surprisingly for such a heavily sculpted knife, the handle is extremely comfortable and fits perfectly into the hand.
As you would expect, the fit and finish are exceptional and the impact tremendous.
