Description: Award winning Swedish bladesmith Henry Hildén held nothing back when he created this Damascus hunter. The Damascus blade has a bold twisted explosions pattern Damascus blade with a false edge. The Damascus is stunning, with very high contrast and a nice deep etch. The combination of 1778 and 15N20 carbon steel with have excellent edge holding.
The handle is comprised of a central piece of masur birch. The bright tones and convoluted grain structure bring warmth to the piece. This is surrounded by deep black African blackwood and cream toned fossil mammoth ivory (20,000 - 30,000 yrs old). The nickel silver spacers have been meticulously fileworked. The pommel is carved and textured nickel silver.
Exceptional fit and finish from one of the true masters of Swedish bladesmithing!
