Description: Collectors of Anders' work know that he has some of the tightest tolerances of any maker, anywhere. Anders excels in creating a fusion of Japanese and Nordic styles.
Musk Ox Dagger features a 1050 carbon steel blade that was created using a traditional Japanese clay heat treatment technique. The artful hamon (temper lines) show the transition between a soft central spine and keen, hard cutting edge.
The handle is formed from very rare musk ox horn. The convoluted grain of the horn is slightly translucent, showing tremendous depth in the material. The guard is formed from copper that has been textured and antiqued. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
