Description: Swedish knifemaker, Anders, creates works of art that have a meticulous fit and finish that is rarely found on other knives. Attention is paid to every detail.
This large Bowie is one of his masterpieces. The blade, which measures in at approximately 13 2/3 inches, is clay heat treated 1050 carbon steel. This traditional Japanese process results in hard-working blades with resilient spines and strong, hardened edges. The heat treat line is a gently undulating pattern known as gunome in Japan. Showing particular skill, Anders has made the heat treat line follow along the fully sharpened clip.
The handle is formed from ancient walrus ivory with cast bronze and copper fittings. The bronze and copper nicely bring out warm tones in the exceptional fossil walrus ivory. Accompanied by a hand formed and sewn leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout.
