Description: Mardi Meshejian continues to be a maker that I am tremendous inspired by. His unique sense of design and artistry set him apart from the typical knifemaker. This Axe shows off his skill and creativity at his best!
The axe head was forged to shape from 15N20 and 1080 carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. By forging the head closely to shape, Mardi ensured optimal grain structure. As if the damascus weren't captivating enough, Meshejian has carved the steel on both sides of the head.
The handle is carved from a solid piece of titanium. Mardi's style often incorporates ancient techniques (like the hand forged damascus head) with space age materials (like titanium) and this axe doesn't disappoint. The haft is meticulously carved for a particularly comfortable grip. The surface is orange peel textured, which both feels great and looks incredible. Finally, the titanium is differentially anodized.
