Description: Anders uses a traditional Japanese method of heat treating his blades where clay is packed onto the center of the blade. When the blade is heat treated, the edges become very hard while the spine remains relatively soft. This allows the inherent resilience in the steel to remain where it is needed and the edges to take and maintain a very sharp, wear resistant edge. In this case, he has done a double temper, resulting in multiple hamon lines.
The handle is sculpted from black ebony with antiqued copper fittings. The fittings and wood have been sculpted for matching fittings. The sheath is created from exhibition grade African imbua wood that has tremendous grain structure. The knife fully disassembles -- showing Anders exceptional attention to detail and precision work. It is easily to be counted among Anders' nicest work to date.
