Totally love it (now that it’s finished…)! The combination of materials feels so right and the depth of the whole structure never ceases to amaze me. The performance of it is also uncanny (because functional art is what I do!). Mirror finished blade with deep etch for maximum texture and depth of field on this Damascus pattern. Free grinded blade with combined grinds, thin behind the edge & along the spine, tapered blade, created for push, pull, draw but even rocking motions. Perfect 50/50 balance. Transportation sheath and papers included.
