Description: Anders Hogstrom creates knives with an intriguing fusion of Japanese and Nordic cultures. He blends the techniques and styles of his native Sweden with those learned from Scott Slobodian during his apprenticeship in the United States. This influence, combined with his tremendous skill, makes for knives that are beautifully original.
This hunter from Anders has a clay tempered blade using traditional Japanese methods that allow the steel to take a hard edge while maintaining the inherent resilience of a softer spine. The result is a keen, easy to maintain edge on a blade that has tremendous strength and durability. The heat treatment line, or hamon, undulates down the blade with a turnback along the spine.
The handle is formed from curly ash which has been stabilized. The textured bronze guard is echoed in the central pin and lined lanyard hole. The wood is set off to perfection by the golden tones of the bronze. The knife is accompanied by a traditional Swedish tooled leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
