Description: Shane Taylor's Batwing Fighters have been a hallmark of his career. The sleek shape is exceptionally comfortable and maneuverable when held.
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 spine and handle have both been hammer textured for a very dramatic appearance. Subtle skulls float in the texture of the handle -- like spirits floating in the Aether. The blade has a strong distal taper so as the bring the weight back into the handle. This knife is numbered 1013 (13th fixed blade of 2010). Exceptional work throughout!
