Description: This exceptional fighter was made by Argentinian brothers Claudio, Ariel, and Marcelo Sobral. This San Mai Rhino is a hallmark of their work, from the intricate san mai blade, to the large harpoon tip. This fighter is sure to impress anyone who picks it up!
The blade was hand forged from 1095 carbon steel surrounded by 420 stainless steel. This technique, known as san mai (three layers) provides the performance of 1095 carbon steel, with the lower care of stainless steel sides. The transition between the hard center core and the softer sides is particularly dramatic, with a transition line similar to a hamon in appearance. Forge texturing was left on the flats of the knife to show its history of being forged closely to shape.
The handle is formed from a downturned section of stag. Stacked sections of Micarta, Arizona desert ironwood, and stainless spacers separate the stag from the polished 420 stainless steel guard. The handle is exceptionally comfortable and the natural texturing of the stag provides plenty of grip.
To protect the knife during storage and transportation, a custom leather sheath made by Marcelo Sobral is included. A leather zipper pouch with the CAS knives logo is included for storage.
Excellent work throughout!
