Description: When a journeyman smith tests to become a mastersmith, the applicant must present five completed forged knives of various styles. These knives are often seen as the height of a maker's career. This is one of those 5 knives by Audra Draper from when she became a mastersmith June 2000. Not surprisingly, the design and implementation is spectacular. Not only does this knife feel great in your hand, but it has a feel to it that could only be made by Audra!
