Description: Anders has a style all of his own. His blades captivate me like few others. The balance is exquisite . . . The fit and finish spectacular. The fit on the guard to handle is very difficult on this knife and is entirely without the slightest gap. The precision fitting of the guard to the blade is equally ideal. The strong hamon shows that Anders has created a blade where the center core is resilient, whereas the double edged blade is ultra hard for good edge retention.
