Description: This is certainly one of Anders' best works to date. The fit and finish is meticulous. The silk cord hanging from the lanyard loop matches the color of the ivory perfectly. The hamon shows that Anders has created a dagger that will maintain the edge well, but have the strength of the softer core. This technique is very difficult and Anders is a master of it. The blade has a slight leaf shape.
