Description: I was very excited to have the extremely rare find come back to The five mastersmith test knives are generally regarded as the most collectable work of a maker's career. Because these knives will be judged by masters of the ABS for design, fit and finish and artistry, the maker spends countless hours inspecting and perfecting these knives before the test. There are only 5 knives made by each master when they test for their master's credentials. This is one of the five master's test pieces forged by Audra when she became an American Bladesmith Society master in 2000.
Attention has been paid to every detail. The balance is perfect, created by the distal tapered blade. The handle fits very comfortably into the hand. As you would guess, the fit and finish, design, and feel are wonderful.
