Description: Shane Taylor's Batwing Fighters display the maker's singular sense of design at its finest. The sleek shape is exceptionally comfortable and maneuverable when held. This is a knife that will grab your attention with its beauty, and hold it with the sleek shape.
The W2 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 balance, created by the strong distal taper to both tang and blade, comfortably makes this knife an extension of your hand. Shane has chosen highly textured sambar stag for the scales, the texture of which matches the undulations of the hamon. The scales are held in place with screws that have been textured to complement the stag. As always, exceptional fit and finish throughout!
