Description: Minnesota bladesmith Cody Hofsommer has had a passion for knifemaking since he was young. He started learning the art of blacksmithing in 2003, and has hand-forged many knives over the years. His goal is to make a quality piece of art that can also be a practical useful tool. He received his journeyman certification through the American Bladesmith Society in 2018. He competed on History Channel's show, Forged in Fire and was named champion after making a damascus pattern Spanish Conquistador sword (season 7 episode 18, aired January 22, 2020). We met Cody at Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia and were immediately blown away by his exceptional quality of work. His custom knives are some of the most refined you will ever encounter. We're keeping a close eye on Cody and expect him to become one of the 'greats'.
The blade on this big chopper is hand forged 80CrV2 carbon steel. 80CrV2 carbon steel holds an exceptional edge and maintains high chip resistant, making it perfect for hard use knives. A fuller runs along both sides of the blade. The top is forge textured. The grinds are satin finished. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. Cody's mark is on the left side of the blade.
Hand sculpted G-10 scales are secured to the distal tapered full tang using three pins. The contoured handle feels exceptional and will be comfortable even after hours of use. A lanyard can be threaded through the back of the handle for extra retention.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand tooled leather sheath made by Cody is included. The swivel style belt loop allows the sheath to move out of the way when sitting down.
Excellent work throughout!
