Description: Anders Hogstrom, who is well known for his exceptional fit and finish, created this Kwaiken in 2007. It has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. It is in mint condition and by all appearances, Anders could have made it yesterday.
The blade was forged to shape by Hogstrom. This is a rare example of a blade where he forged his own damascus. It is likely among his first blades forged from his own damascus. The bold damascus pattern is nicely highlighted by the clean grinds.
The presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood handle is exceptional. The warm colored wood has complex, convoluted figure. The guard and pommel are antiqued and textured bronze. A matching hand domed bronze pine sets the handle in place.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stiched custom sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
