Description: Anders specializes in combining traditional Japanese construction with traditional Nordic styles of knives. Anders uses a traditional Japanese method of tempering a blade that involves coating the spine of the knife in clay. This produces the dramatic hamon (temper line) as well as creating a knife with superior edge-holding ability.
The thick (1/4") spine results in a strong blade. The fit between blade and sterling silver bolster is seamless, as is the fit between handle and bolster. The golden maple has a nice mix of tones and grain structure. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
