Description: Anders Hogstrom, who is well known for his exceptional fit and finish, created this Recurve Fighter in the summer of 2007. It has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. It is in mint condition and by all appearances, Anders could have made it yesterday.
The blade was forged to shape by Hogstrom. This is a rare example of a blade where he forged his own damascus. The spine has a long swedge and an armor piercing tip, resulting in a dramatic and appealing profile. The bold damascus pattern is nicely highlighted by the clean grinds.
The ancient walrus ivory handle is exceptional. The ivory is burnt cream toned with hints of caramel. The guard and pommel are antiqued and textured copper. A bronze spacer adds nice contrast. The tones in the fittings nicely complement the ancient ivory.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stiched custom sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
