Description: This dramatic camp knife is the work of Andrew Blomfield. Andrew hails from New South Wales, Australia and became an American Bladesmith Society Journeyman Smith in June 2022. I was tremendously excited when I was introduced to his work by fellow countryman Bruce Barnett. Blomfield brings a level of skill that is extremely rare, as shown in this sole-authorship camp knife.
The 7-1/2 inch blade is forged from Blomfield's own mosaic damascus, combining 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels. The intricate, complex pattern will have you staring at it for hours. Andrew's touchmark is on the left side of the blade. Because the blade is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade and natural wood handle.
The premium walrus ivory selected for the handle is among the most dramatic sections of walrus ivory I have ever seen. The ancient ivory combines cream tones with very rare black and orange tones. The contoured handle fills your hand and is very comfortable. Polished brass spacers surround the ivory column. The guard and end cap are hot salt blued steel. The fit and finish of this knife is exceptional throughout!
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand stitched leather custom sheath is included. The sheath features a retention strap and an ostrich leather inlay.
Exceptional work throughout!
