Description: Every so often there is a piece that goes so far beyond a standard knife that the impact is hard to describe. By mixing ancient and modern materials, Mardi is able to create a "knife" that is among the most impressive pieces that I have ever seen.
The handle is forged from 1095 and 4130 carbon steels and has been fully sculpted. Damascus steel forged from chainsaw blade has been forge welded to the top of the blade, forming a feather like texture. A copper wash creates shadow. A secure hand hold is created from forge welding copper/niobium super conductor cable. The base flairs out with titanium and fossil walrus ivory.
Heat oxidized copper forms wings that securely hold the blade in place. The solid steel stand holds it to earth.
