Description: We were excited when Australian bladesmith Jason Heinemann reached out to ask if BladeGallery would represent his work. Jason clearly has an eye for the small details and talented skills at the forge. Heinemann began taking his bladesmithing career to the next level after taking classes at Australian bladesmithing school Tharwa Valley Forge in 2018 where he learned to create and refine complex damascus patterns. He currently prefers to make one-of-a-kind art knives with a focus on bowie knives, fighters, and daggers. This Feather Damascus Fighter shows Jason's skills at their best and can easily be the center of any collection!
The large 9-1/2 inch blade is Jason's own feather pattern damascus, hand forged from 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels for excellent edge retention and toughness. The high contrast, detailed pattern is extremely engaging and encourages further inspection.
. The handle is ancient walrus ivory, contoured to provide a comfortable grip. The S-guard, spacer, and end cap are antiqued brass, accented with 416 stainless steel. The end cap includes a custom takedown pin. This allows the knife to be disassembled if cleaning and maintenance are needed. Take-down construction requires tighter tolerances and shows Heinemann's focus on the details. Because this knife is made from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade and natural walrus ivory handle.
To keep the knife close at hand, a custom leather sheath made by Shane Partridge of Blacks Blades is included. The sheath features Asian water monitor inlay.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
