Description: Mardi's love for making sculptural pieces clearly shows through on this masterpiece. There is something wonderfully primitive and yet playful in this piece.
Mardi began by forging the damascus from 15N20 and 1080 carbon steels. The blade was then carved and pierced. A copper habaki separates the majestic blade from the carved pink ivory handle. An anodized titanium guard adds contrast. The pink ivory handle has been carved in matching elegant organic curves. This is one of those pieces where the textures and color tones work exceptional well! Exceptional work throughout!
