Description: This exceptional Ladder Damascus Cutlass was made by Argentinian brothers Claudio, Ariel, and Marcelo Sobral. Large ornate knives such as this are a hallmark of their work, from the intricate damascus blade, to the dramatic guard and handle. This large Cutlass is sure to impress anyone who picks it up!
The ladder damascus blade is hand forged damascus, combining 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels. The monster 13-1/2 inch blade is sure to handle any heavy duty tasks like chopping with ease. The long swedge stops just short of fully sharpened and could be sharpened into a double edge if desired. A blade of this size can be extremely difficult to grind -- and this one is perfectly symmetrical with nice even grinds. A large fuller pulls some weight out of the blade to provide nice forward momentum while swinging the blade. The CAS maker mark is on the spine.
The heat blued steel guard is integral to the frame showing incredible control and skill. The sculpting on the guard is exceptionally dramatic, showing the Sobral brothers creativity at design. The guard was inlaid with 24K gold accents, bringing just enough highlight. Exhibition grade Arizona desert ironwood scales are secured to the integral frame using six hand domed pins. The sculpted handle is exceptionally comfortable and provides an excellent grip.
This is one of those knives you just won't want to put down. It is sure to be the highlight of most any collection!
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand tooled leather sheath is included.
Exceptional work throughout!
