Description: This exceptional knife was created by Gene Martin. The modified tanto shaped blade is A2 semi-stainless steel and will have exceptional edge holding. Both the spine and cutting edge are fully sharpened.
Front and rear bolsters surround sheep horn scales set with mosaic pins. The bolsters are formed from Gene's own "Mokumascus". The Mokumascus is a fusion between mokume gane and damascus and combines copper with steel -- quite a feat! Red fiber spacers insulate the copper in the bolsters from the A2 steel. The knife is accompanied by a hand formed leather sheath. Excellent work throughout!
