Description: Forged and created in 2000, Mastersmith Shane Taylor recently found this piece in his workshop. It had been misplaced while Shane worked on another project. It is stamped Shane 005 (5th knife of 2000).
The blade has a distal taper and a deep clip point, bringing the weight to the center of this batwing style fighter. The blade has a dramatic heat treat line, showing a differential heat treatment -- resulting in a blade that is very strong and will keep a razor sharp edge. Forged from powdered 1084 carbon steel, this blade has a distinctive patterning with a wootz-like appearance. The spine and exposed full tang are fileworked with a vine pattern. Excellent fit and finish throughout and a tremendous collector's piece.
