Description: Mastersmith Henry Torres had the opportunity to work under renowned Mastersmith Bill Burke in the spring of 2006. This allowed him to best understand Bill's techniques of heat treating and implementation, which result in a level of edge holding rarely found elsewhere.
The clip point blade was forged to shape from Henry's own damascus beginning with 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels. The Whirlpool pattern damascus is high contrast and immediately captivating. A long swedge lightens the tip of the blade
The guard and pommel are each formed from matching damascus. These surround the premium stag handle. The pommel has been carved to nicely match the natural texture of the handle. Black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The natural handle is nicely downturned for a comfortable, secure grip.
Accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout!
