Description: Having lived in the same time as Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley, Don had an able teacher to help him refine his skills, and the results are exceptional.
Don began by forging a 171 layer Damascus, beginning with 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. Matching Damascus was used for the blade and bolsters. The blade is well centered with smooth action and is easily opened with the ruby thumb stud. Sheep horn scales are dovetailed to the bolsters for a perfect fit. The 1084 carbon steel backbar and 15N20 liners have each been fully fileworked. Screws throughout are fileworked. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
