Description: This Mosaic Damascus San Mai Khukri was made by Ohio bladesmith Justin Chenault. Justin started making knives in 2005. His first foray into smithing was in a high school class where he was tasked with forging a hatchet for camping. After graduating high school, Justin assembled the basics of his own blacksmith's shop. He quickly joined the Southern Ohio Forge Associate (SOFA) which helped him connect with other smiths. Justin is a journeyman smith with the American Bladesmith Society. He won Season 7, Episode 6 of Forged in Fire, proving his skills on national television.
The 9.4 inch blade is hand forged from Justin's own mosaic damascus, combining 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding and chip resistance. Justin's mark is on the left side of the ricasso. A raised clip makes the shape particularly dramatic.
Presentation grade ancient walrus is combined with antiqued bronze fittings. Colors in the ancient ivory developed across thousands of years as minerals moved from the soil into the ivory. The finial can be twisted to disassemble the knife if cleaning or maintenance is needed. Take-down construction requires tighter tolerances and shows Justin's focus on the small details.
A custom pouch style warthog leather sheath is included.
Exceptional work throughout!
