Description: Collectors of Anders' work know that he has some of the tightest tolerances of any maker, anywhere. Anders excels in combining exhibition grade woods with textured, antiqued fittings, creating a fusion of Japanese and Nordic styles. By casting the Chinese gold, he is able to create fittings that integrate into the dagger, creating a true masterwork. Chinese gold is an alloy consisting of copper and zinc. It simulates a medium gold in color and develops a dramatic patina which evokes an ancient feeling. The stainless steel blade has a meticulous hand satin finish. The guard combines textured antique and satin finishes. The masur birch used throughout has warm tones and dramatic flames moving through the grain. Exceptional work throughout.
