Description: Mastersmith Wade Colter is a 'maker's maker' -- a maker that other makers try to emulate and admire. Amongst both makers and collectors, Wade is legendary for his attention to detail, fit and finish.
The Persian Wheat Vest Dirk is an elegant knife inspired by the San Francisco knives of the 1980s. The ladder pattern blade is forged to shape from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. Sterling silver fittings include a habaki (blade guard), oval guard, and ferrule. The handle is highly carved into stylized Persian Wheat. The knife is built with take-down construction so that it can be maintained and cleaned. This construction shows Wade's devotion to every detail. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
