Description: This collaboration between Heather Shoebotham and Kevin Harvey produced an amazing result. Heather produces her high-contrast Damascus by coating the blade in Brownell's baking lacquer and then polishing off the high points. The springbuck horn handle makes this a uniquely South African twist on a traditional Mediterranean style knife. One of the things that I appreciate about Heather's and Kevin's work is that they use native South African materials almost exclusively while utilizing styles from around the world, creating a unique fusion.
