Description: Award winning Swedish bladesmith Henry Hildén held nothing back when he created this Swedish hunter. The multi-bar composite blade is forged from a central mosaic bar surrounded by a firecracker edge and spine. The central bar is forged fro pure nickel and iron and is a pattern that he calls wrapped stars. The spine and edge are forged from 1778 and 15N20 carbon steels for exceptional edge retention. The pattern is extremely clear and shows tremendous control and skill.
The handle features blued Damascus fittings and a highly figured desert ironwood wooden handle, featuring decorative pinwork, one of the hallmarks of Henry's work Even the end nut is forged from Damascus. Nickel silver spacers have been highly fileworked. The masur birch spacer has been fileworked and surrounded by nickel silver. The fit and finish is extremely well executed, from the precision fit mosaic Damascus guard, to the meeting between the bolster and wooden handle.
