Description: Mastersmith JD Smith has an artistic vision to his work that is exceptional -- a primitive sense of power is combined with meticulous precision.
This utility shows his skill and attention to every detail. The slender blade shows his skill at the forge. Two bars of damascus were forged together for have a row of explosions travel outward from the center of the blade. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance.
Nickel silver fittings surround the African blackwood handle. The fittings have been fileworked. The blackwood is carved to resemble a cord wrapped traditional Japanese handle. It is both creative and tremendously comfortable.
The knife is accompanied by a tooled leather sheath.
A masterpiece with exceptional fit and finish throughout!
