Blade: "Dragon" pattern mosaic Damascus -- be sure to check out the alternate photos on this one -- using over 5 different steels (including L6, 15N20, Nickel, 1084, 1018) to create multiple colors in the heat blued Damascus.
Bolster: Same as blade
Handle: Fully sculpted light toned mammoth ivory belly with darker colored mastodon back
Description: This may be the most detailed Damascus ever made . . . it is certainly the most detailed that Iíve ever seen. A magnifying glass will show even more detail in the dragons!
Shane used a taxidermy eye for diamondback rattlesnake for the thumbstud. Gold leaf backing creates an amazing amount of iridescence. These are very difficult to set!
The sculpted handle uses both mastodon and mammoth ivory to evoke a dragonís scales and lighter stomach.
Fully fileworked inside and out, ranging from the heat blued 15N20 liners, to the Damascus backbar. Even the screws have been fileworked and heat blued.
