Description: This exceptional fighter was made by Ed Caffrey in 1995 and traded to another mastersmith for some of their work. It has been held in a private collection since then and has been meticulously cared for. It is in new condition.
The differentially heat treated 5160 carbon steel blade will have a keen, long lasting edge. A long, wide clip has been brought nearly to a sharpened edge. The right side has been stamped with Ed's JS mark. The ash burl handle has been stabilized so as to hold up well under heavy use and nicely shows off the grain pattern of the burl. Nice mix of lights and darks. The turquoise spacer nicely accents the handle. Excellent fit and finish throughout and a rare find!
