Description: Mastersmith JD Smith has an artistic vision to his work that is exceptional -- a primitive sense of power is combined with meticulous precision.
This deceptively simple African blackwood utility shows his skill and attention to every detail. The slender blade is just over 5 inches and shows his skill at the forge. The expertly laddered damascus has tremendous chatoyancy -- the pattern appears to move and change when the knife is turned in the light. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance. The mosaic damascus bolster forms a perfect separator between the blade and expertly shaped handle. The African blackwood is carved to swell at the middle, move into a slimmer waist, and swell again at the end. It is extremely comfortable and not a knife you'll want to put down.
Accompanied by a tooled leather sheath. A masterpiece with exceptional fit and finish throughout!
