Description: Collectors of Anders' work know that he has some of the tightest tolerances of any maker, anywhere. Anders excels in creating a fusion of Japanese and Nordic styles. The guard is cast from bronze and copper, textured and antiqued. By casting, he is able to create fittings that integrate into the dagger, creating a true masterwork. The hamon (temper lines) created by Anders' clay heat treat process makes a knife that has excellent edge retention, while also having the support of a softer central core. The double hamon is created by the differential hardness of the blade. The handle is formed from very rare musk ox horn. The convoluted grain of the horn is slightly translucent, showing tremendous depth in the material. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
