Description: South African knifemaker Hennie du Plessis creates an exceptional knife. This bird and trout shows his tremendous attention to all the details.
The san mai blade features brightly colored brass, copper and stainless steel sides surrounding a V-Toku2 carbon steel core. V-Toku2 is a 'super-steel' created by Takefu, in Japan. Very high in carbon content (approx. 1.1%), this steel holds and takes an amazing edge. The effect created by the mokume gane sides is extremely captivating! At Hrc 64, this is among the highest performing knives ever made by du Plessis.
The stainless steel handle is meticulously engraved by Ilze du Plessis, Hennie's wife. Copper accents bring out the copper in the blade.
This elegant elegant bird and trout will easily be the highlight of most any collection, yet would also be a great choice to use out in the field.
Accompanied by a hand stitched pouch style leather custom sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
