Description: Gary Rodewald is an outstanding bladesmith, creating knives with exceptional edge holding as well as exceptional beauty. This impressive knife is sure to become a favorite in your collection!
Gary forged the blade to shape from W2 carbon steel. It features a hand rubbed satin finish and a razor sharp edge. It was heat treated using a traditional Japanese technique. The spine was coated with clay prior to quenching, which results in a softer, supportive spine with a keen, long lasting edge. The undulating heat treatment line is called a gunome hamon in Japan. A long swedge travels about half way up the spine.
The handle is made from premium stag. The stag provides a secure grip and feels great in the hand! A brass guard and spacers add excellent contrast. An ancient walrus ivory spacer forms the front of the handle. This knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath made by Gordon Kenley.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
