Description: Anders uses a traditional Japanese method of tempering a blade that involves coating the spine of the knife in clay. This produces the wonderful hamon (temper line) as well as creating a knife with superior edge-holding ability. Anders specializes in combining traditional Japanese construction with traditional Nordic styles of knives. Anders has equipped the blade with a chatoyant sallow root handle and textured copper fittings that blend together beautifully.
