Description: This hand forged Persian Fighter was made by Journeyman bladesmith Jim Arbuckle. If features a distal tapered blade hand forged from 5160 carbon steel. It was hardened and double tempered to Hrc 58-59, assuring a keen, long lasting edge. The spine was softened with a torch to impart toughness. The elliptical guard is made from Jim's own damascus. It incorporates 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels and was carved and heat blued. Four spacers separate the handle from the guard: black fiber, copper, mammoth ivory and fiber. This assists the handle to adjust to changes in humidity and temperature. The desert ironwood handle has been carved to not only be attractive but also very comfortable. This is one of those knives you won't want to put down! The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath. Excellent work throughout!
