Description: Johan Gustafsson is famed for creating some of the most detailed damascus found anywhere -- and this is an exceptional example of his work.
This offset dagger blade was forged to shape to reveal an explosion pattern edge with black 20C carbon steel. A highly complex mosaic Damascus insert forms the central point of the blade. Mosaics of a highly complex Asian dragon were then forged directly into the blade. To accomplish this effect, a mosaic damascus rod depicting tiny dragons on a radial background was forge-welded through the blade. Johan has spent years developing a complex heat coloring technique to bring out colors rarely, if ever, found in other makers' work. This blade has been heat colored to spectacular purples, greens and gold. Ready to by handled either by you or your favorite maker.
