Description: Gary House is best known for his outstanding Damascus. His steel, which is frequently used by other high end makers on their knives, is dramatic -- showing tremendous interest in the details when viewed close at hand and having bolder patterns that draw attention from a distance.
Both the drop point blade and the oval guard were forged from Gary's damascus beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The blade is a multi-bar composite of twisted Ws. The guard is an explosion pattern. The nicely rounded handle is formed from a section of fossil walrus ivory artifact. In the mid-1800s, the Inuit used fossil walrus ivory for tools ranging from fish hooks, to fire starters and sled runners. This is one such artifact. Gary has left the shape of the fossil artifact largely unchanged and the organic shape is extremely captivating. Exceptional work throughout!
