Description: Sam Eddleman is a maker to watch. There's often an element of the fantastic in his knives, with stylistic references to both feudal Japan and the contemporary military. Sam made his first knife in 2008 -- as a knife collector he found that making knives himself was the intuitive next step.
Sam's work is definitely holding its own against the big names in this little dashi! Sam enjoys the look of a tanto style blade and this is evident in his interpretation of this traditional Japanese knife. The single bevel blade is made from 154CM stainless steel, hardened to 59-60 Hrc, with a secondary bevel for a stronger edge. The clean grind line is accentuated by a differential stonewash/satin finish.
Toad skin leather is durable and strong as well as dramatic. The toadskin is set beneath a black nylon wrap. Combined, these two materials ensure a secure, comfortable grip. A skull menuki is laid in the center of the handle, creating a palm swell. Excellent work throughout!
