Description: An exceptional sword by Anders Högström! The fit and finish is meticulous, the styling inspired!
The long blade is 21 2/3 in and features a stark hamon. The hamon shows that Anders has created a sword that will maintain the edge well, but have the strength of the softer core. This technique is very difficult and Anders is a master of it.
The handle is formed from fossil walrus ivory and features green, brown, and blue tones. Cast, antiqued copper fittings have been textured. The habiki (blade collar) features a Nordic helmet on one side and a Thor's hammer on the reverse. Solid 18k gold fittings are used throughout. This is the first and only straight sword that Anders has made and the first one with an ivory handle will disassemble. The sheath is formed from reinforced leather and features a solid 18k gold button. Exceptional!
