Description: Mastersmith Dionatam Franco hails from Brazil. His skill in the forge is only matched with his tremendous attention to detail. He was honored as a master smith at the 2018 Blade Show in Atlanta and received the BR Hughes Award for the best knife submitted by a master smith candidate.
This Clip Point Hunter blade is formed from a highly complex mosaic damascus Franco calls Micro Explosion. The tiled mosaic shows tremendous control at the forge. There is absolutely zero distortion in the complex pattern. There are very few bladesmiths with the skills to forge this complex blade.
The handle is formed from presentation grade rosewood. The handle is carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and swell again at the end of the handle. A mosaic pin sets the handle in place. The guard is formed from matching damascus and is inlaid with a frame formed from 24k gold. The seam between the guard and bolster is a beautiful heirloom fit. The handle is completed with a lanyard tube.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched black leather sheath.
Absolutely exceptional work throughout.
