Description: The extremely tightly figured masur birch on the handle vies for attention with the deep double hamon of the double-edged blade and is unified by the brushed sterling silver bolster of this piece. The genius of fitting the three distinct textures of handle, bolster, and traditional Japanese clay tempered blade together into the spare style of Nordic daggers is pure Anders Högström. To achieve the unusual double hamon, Anders tempered this blade twice. Not only does it add additional interest visually, but it also insures even better edge-holding quality than usual.
