Hand forged folded Damascus steel blade
Micarta, bull horn and brass handle
Includes a hand made hardwood presentation box for storage or display!

Damascus steel blades are created by forging multiple layers of various steels into a solid block called a billet.
The billet is then folded and re-welded many times to create multiple layers and patterns.
When acid is applied to the blade, it attacks the layers of hard and soft steels differently, highlighting the attractive patterns in the steel.
The combination of layered hard and soft steels creates blade flexibility, hardness and durability and produces invisible serrations on the cutting edge that aid in cutting.

The Damascus blade of this beautiful little knife is the result of hours of forging from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels into 512 layers, creating a beautiful Damascus pattern.
The cutting edge has been heat treated to attain a hardness of 59 on the Rockwell scale.
The spine displays some intricate hand file work, continuing through into the handle
A full tang construction (meaning the handle and blade is forged from a single piece of steel) ensures strength and rigidity.
The combination of micarta and bull horn with brass and fiber spacers for the handle is a perfect compliment to the beauty of the blade.
Solid brass scales were used for the bolster as well as the heel section.
Accompanying this incredible knife is a hand tooled thick quality leather sheath.
