Description: Anders is well known for creating knives that are extremely well made and have an excellent feel in the hand. The fit and finish is excellent. By using only exhibition quality wood, Anders is able to create a knife with true class. The strong hamon shows that he has created a differential heat treat, where the back of the blade is softer, but the edge is hard, so as to create a strong blade that will hold its edge exceptionally well.
