Description: Award winning Swedish knifemaker Henry Hildén created this exquisite sole authorship Nordic Axe. The fit and finish throughout is exceptional. This is easily one of the most dramatic axes I have ever seen!
The multi-bar composite damascus blade is forged from four bars of twist pattern damascus. By using 15N20 and 1778 carbon steels, Henry ensures excellent edge holding. The head is beautifully carved and the cheek is set with faceted mosaic damascus. The eye is sealed with a section of Ws pattern damascus.
The dramatic haft is carved from presentation grade curly birch. The grip is textured to avoid slipping. Just below the head, Henry has set a sterling silver collar and a damascus handle guard to protect the haft from impact during full penetration and overstrikes. The haft is completed with a damascus knob where Henry has set a sterling silver name plate with his maker's mark.
The axe is accompanied by an exquisite display stand made from masur birch and elk antler. A curly birch edge guard protects the blade.
Exceptional work throughout from one of the great Swedish knifemakers!
