Description: Mastersmith JD Smith has an artistic vision to his work that is exceptional -- a primitive sense of power is combined with meticulous precision.
This African Blackwood and Damascus Fighter features a long, clip point blade forged to shape by JD using his own damascus. The bold pattern was created by combining 1095 carbon steel with Harley Davidson motorcycle chain.
African blackwood scales are set on a fileworked full tang. Damascus bolsters are dovetailed to the scales for a perfect fit. Accompanied by a tooled leather sheath. The carving in the leather is a style that JD Smith has developed and is done freehand using a flat knife. A masterpiece with exceptional fit and finish throughout!
