Description: This exceptional large Dha draws its influence from Eastern and Western styles. The deeply re-curved blade makes it an exceptional cutter. The long clip lightens the blade and results in a perfect swinging motion.
Michael forged the 26" blade from 15N20 and 8660 carbon steels. The resulting wild random pattern Damascus is highly detailed -- continuing to be fascinating both from a distance and upon closer examination. By forging the blade to shape, Michael has assured exceptional strength and beauty. A mar quench during the heat treatment results in optimal edge retention.
The handle is formed from Peruvian walnut with curly maple. The woods are reflected in the sheath and Peruvian walnut presentation stand. Michael's superior woodworking is a hallmark of his style. The woods are meticulously combined complex arches. Exceptional work throughout.
