Description: Journeyman Smith Josh Fisher creates an amazing knife -- one that many mastersmiths would look at enviously!
The 4 inch clip point blade was forged from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels into a controlled ladder pattern. The repetitive waves are immediately captivating. The long swedge is unsharpened. The blade has as keen razor edge.
Handle scales are formed from premium curly koa wood. The stabilized wood has tight curls that nicely complement waves in the layered steel. The handle is nicely carved for a comfortable, secure grip.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath inlaid with crocodile belly hide -- showing Josh Fisher's skill at leatherwork to be nearly parallel with his skill in the forge.
