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 drop-point blade was forged to shape using the san mai technique. A central bar of highly complex explosion pattern damascus is sandwiched between layers of nickel and 20C carbon steel. A Dragon Moon is forged directly into the blade. To accomplish this effect, a mosaic damascus rod depicting the highly complex Asian dragon 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. The flats of the blade are a matt black, with the central bar and Dragon Moon showing off purple, gold, and silver tones. Ready to by handled either by you or your favorite maker. A great hunter/utility shape.
