Description: Journeyman Smith Josh Fisher creates an amazing knife -- one that many mastersmiths would look at enviously!
The 8-1/2 inch blade was forged from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels into a controlled ladder pattern. The repeating waves are immediately captivating. The long swedge is unsharpened. The blade is a keen, razor.
The S-guard and ferrule are formed from mild steel that was polished and gun blued to a deep black. Handle scales are formed from premium curly koa wood. The stabilized wood has a curly figure that nicely complements waves in the layered steel. The damascus frame is formed from matching damascus with a fileworked stainless spacer.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath -- showing Josh Fisher's skill at leatherwork to be nearly parallel with his skill in the forge.
