Description: The Lost in Time folder clearly shows the influence of a steam punk aesthetic on Mastersmith Shane Taylor's work.
The multi-bar damascus blade combines three separate bars of damascus, carefully forged together into one of the most dramatic blades I have ever encountered. The edge section is formed from two bars of damascus, set in set into an opposing twist. This produces a pattern called Turkish Twist. The central bar is a mosaic damascus pattern depicting intricate gears. The blade has been heat colored to golden/purple hues.
The handle is formed from bronze and shows articulated imprints of gears, seemingly frozen in time. 15N20 carbon steel liners are textured and heat colored to a golden bronze tone. Both the interior and exterior of the 1084 carbon steel backbar is meticulously engraved with gears and terminates on opposing ends with a Celtic cross. The center of the interior of the backbar is engraved with Shane's mark.
Exceptional work throughout!
