Description: An exceptional work with excellent fit and finish throughout, this collaborative knife was created by Mike and Audra Draper. It is truly a masterpiece that shows off both maker's work at their best. On the inside of the backbar, the makers have engraved "Mike & Audra Draper FF2", designating this as their second collaborative sheep horn. The inside of the titanium liners have been mirror polished for a dramatic reflective effect.
The blade is forged from 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels into bold mosaic Damascus pattern. The bolsters, with their swooping grind, are influenced by the Draper's friendship with knifemaker Ken Onion. The sheephorn scales and blade shape hearken back to Audra's apprenticeship under Mastersmith Ed Fowler. The scales are polished and rounded on both sides (making it comfortable for both a right or left-handed user, with a slight preference for the right-handed user.
