Description: This exceptional fighter was made by Argentinian brothers Claudio, Ariel, and Marcelo Sobral. This fighter is a hallmark of their work, from the intricate san mai blade, to the large harpoon tip. This Condor 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 offered by 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. The flats are forge textured to show its history of being forged closely to shape.
The handle is formed from a downturned section of stag. Alternating spacers formed from Micarta and stainless steel separate the stag from the polished 420 stainless steel guard. The handle is exceptionally comfortable and the natural texture of the stag provides a perfect grip.
To protect the knife during storage and transportation, a leather sheath made by Marcelo Sobral is included. A zipper pouch with the CAS knives logo is included for storage.
Excellent work throughout!
