Description: Fred Ott's work is exceptional -- showing off his tremendous sense of design and skill in implementation.
This exceptional fighter has a tremendous sense grace. The blade was forged from Fred's own damascus -- beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The twist pattern is immediately captivating!
The handle was hand fluted by Fred from stabilized amboyna burl (Pterocarpus indicus). The convoluted pattern of the wood nicely matches the hand fluting. This exquisite piece of wood combines blond sapwood with the red toned heartwood. A textured and antiqued bronze bolster adds excellent contrast.
Tremendous fit and finish throughout with a great feel in the hand.
