Description: Shane Taylor's Bat Claw Fighters have long been among my favorite knife designs. The sleek shape is exceptionally comfortable and maneuverable when held.
The carbon steel blade was differentially heat treated using the traditional Japanese clay technique. This method results in a gently undulating transition line called a hamon. The spine and handle have both been hammer textured for a very dramatic appearance. The surface has been hot blued. Both the blade and tang have strong distal tapers so as the bring the weight back to the center of the handle. Accompanied by Kydex sheath by Journeyman smith Erik Fritz. This knife is numbered 092. Exceptional work throughout!
