Description: This Forged Fighter is an exceptional example of Raymond Richard's work. It has an elegance and timeless sense to it that wouldn't be out of place by the side of an American pioneer, bravely breaking ground in a new land. It captures the spirit of a time gone by - yet has the excellence one expects from a contemporary knifemaker.
The blade is forged from steel recovered from an antique lumber saw blade -- an extremely tough steel with very good edge holding. The thin blade is extremely light, making this knife quick and nimble despite its size. The blade features an elegant forced patina. Richard's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is contoured from koa wood. Koa (Acacia koa) is a beautiful exotic wood that only grows on the Hawaiian islands. It is one of the most desirable woods in the world. A wrought iron spacer and oval guard prevent your hand from sliding forward. A brass wire finial completes the handle.
Excellent work throughout!
