Description: I was tremendously pleased to meet bladesmith Dave Skinner at the 2019 Guild Show of Southern Africa. Dave brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives. Over the years since then, his work has continued to develop and grow.
This Gent's Fighter is a tremendous knife -- combining Dave's tremendous skill at the forge with his exceptional attention to detail.
The blade was forged to shape from Skinner's own mosaic damascus, combining 1080 and 15n20 carbon steels. The blade is flat ground for a high performing edge.
The contoured handle is stabilized redwood burl. This exhibition grade wood has a tremendous lace figure and combines mid-brown tones with chocolate. The mosaic damascus guard is separated from the handle with a coined stainless spacer.
This fighter is accompanied by a custom crocodile hide sheath by Felicity McNamara. Like the knife, it is exceptional!
