Description: Journeyman Smith Henry Torres had the opportunity to work under renowned bladesmith Bill Burke in 2006. This allowed him to best understand Bill's techniques of heat treating and implementation, which result in a level of edge holding rarely found elsewhere. Henry heat treated this blade using the same technique -- creating a differentially heat treated blade with a hard edge and softer, supportive spine. The result is exceptional.
The drop point blade was forged from 52100 carbon steel. The blade was etched and meticulously hand satin finished -- bringing out the wootz-like grain structure that develops in the steel when forged in a very tight temperature range. A 416 stainless pommel and guard surround Indian stag. Black fiber spacers assist the knife to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. A fileworked steel spacer brings in dramatic interest. Accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
