Description: Swedish bladesmith Michael Andersson is a force to be reckoned with. His style is immediately identifiable and is very dramatic. The Swedish Hunter shows off his work at its best.
The multi-bar composite damascus blade is truly amazing! An explosion pattern damascus edge bar was forge welded to the twisted damascus primary bar. The combination is extremely elegant! 15N20 and 20C carbon steels ensure exceptional edge holding and high contrast. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The handle is formed from stabilized buckeye burl. A damascus bolster, spacer and pommel bring weight into the handle. The handle is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. This is a knife you won't want to put down.
The knife is accompanied by a single seam, traditional Swedish leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
