Description: Bladesmith Kevin Slattery hails from Australia. I was very excited when Mastersmith Bill Burk introduced me to his work.
The 4.2 inch blade was closely forged to shape from W2 carbon steel. Kevin brought in a traditional Japanese heat treating technique called honyaki whereby the spine is coated in clay prior to quenching. The result is a more resilient spine with a keen, long lasting cutting edge. The undulating line travelling along the blade is called a gunome hamon. This technique has exceptional results and shows Kevin's skills at their best. The long slender blade is a perfect choice for a bird and trout knife.
The handle is formed from ringed gidgee wood (Acacia cambage). This Australian wood is exceptionally hard and resilient. The beautifully figured wood is immediately captivating. A bronze guard is perfectly fit to blade and handle. A black fiber spacer assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity change.
The knife is accompanied by a tooled pouch style leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
