Description: Traditional Japanese clay tempering gives a blade with a resilient spine and a hardened edge for strength, resulting in a very functional, hard-wearing knife. This tough blade is accented by the rich texture of the blackened Chinese gold bolster and buttcap, which contrasts with the smooth finish of the mammoth ivory. The finish is satin smooth and has a filed groove between both bolster and buttcap. This is sleek blend of the Nordic and Japanese styles.
