Description: This knife by Anders Hogstrom is an exceptional example of his work. Regretably, few of Ander's knives make it to the US these days. This knife has been in a private collection since it was made in the spring of 2009. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. By all appearances, Hogstrom could have made it yesterday.
The contoured handle is dyed and stabilized masur birch. . When combined with the natural browns of the wood, this results in an exceptionally dramatic handle. The textured solid sterling silver guard is reflected in the central sterling silver pin.
The blade was forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Conny Persson, combining 15N20 and 20C carbon steels in to a tight explosion pattern. The pattern exceptionally well controlled and shows Conny's tremendous skill in the forge.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched custom sheath.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
