Description: Anders performed a traditional Japanese clay tempering on this blade, resulting in a unique temper line (hamon). The double hamon is particularly appealing and shows tremendous control over the process. As a result of this technique, the center of the blade is soft and resilient, whereas edge is very hard and will hold an exceptional edge.
The highly figured golden maple burl handle blends beautifully with the antiqued copper guard and pin. Anders attention to detail is complete, and his fit and finish is exceptional.
