Description: Mastersmith Scott Gallagher makes an exceptional knife. I was very excited when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Scott at the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta. Over the years, his work has continued to develop. Scott achieved the coveted Master Smith title with the American Blade Society in April of 2021. Gallagher's attention to detail is immediately visible in his exquisite knives.
The blade is hand forged from Scott's own damascus, combining 15N20 and 1080 caron steels. The damascus is a nice mix of bold and fine patterns.
The handle is ringed gidgee (Acacia cambagei). This dramatic wood is an Acacia species native in south eastern Australia. It has a dramatic figure similar to curly koa, combined with excellent stability. The handle is fit to a 416 stainless steel guard. Scott has meticulously hand engraved the guard in a running wheat pattern.
To keep the knife close at hand, a tooled pouch style leather custom sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
