Description: Anders is well known for making knives with extremely tight tolerances. The design is enticing and creates a very solid feel in the hand. The masur birch has a very dramatic appearance that evokes flames. The double temper lines created by Anders' clay process make a knife have excellent edge retention, while also having the support of a softer central core.
