Description: Collectors of Anders' work know that he has some of the tightest tolerances of any maker, anywhere. Anders excels in creating a fusion of Japanese and Nordic styles. The guard is cast from bronze, textured and antiqued to a blackened finish. By casting, he is able to create fittings that integrate into the dagger, creating a true masterwork. The blade and guard have been drilled to create a terrific effect. The hamon (temper lines) created by Anders' clay heat treat process makes a knife that has excellent edge retention, while also having the support of a softer central core. The double hamon is created by the differential hardness of the blade. Exceptional work throughout.
