Description: Fred Ott's work is inspirational -- there simply is no other word to describe it. This damascus dagger shows off his tremendous sense of design and skill in implementation.
The double edged blade is hand forged from 1095 and 15N20 carbon steels for excellent edge retention. The high contrast pattern is immediately captivating both from up close and from afar.
The handle is contoured from bushwillow (Combretum erythrophyllum). This dark toned African hardwood has a figure that nicely reflects the patterns in Ott's damascus. Spacers formed from spalted maple and dyed maple make a nice accent. A bonze guard completes the handle.
This is a dagger that is sure to be at home in any collection! It includes a hand stitched leather sheath.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
