Description: This kwaiken from Anders has a handle of maple that has been green dyed and stabilized. When combined with the natural browns of the wood, this results in an exceptionally dramatic handle. The textured bronze fittings are reflected in the central pin. The blade is clay tempered using a traditional Japanese method that allows the steel to take a hard edge while maintaining the inherent resilience of the carbon steel along the spine. The result is a keen, easy to maintain edge on a blade that will stay strong. The resulting heat treatment line is extremely dramatic. The sheath matches perfectly with the green hues coming through the handle. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
