This fixed blade knife is so beautiful, one would think it was made from the Greek Goddess of the hunt herself. The blade is fire forged Damascus steel with approximately 280-350 true layers that give it its gorgeous wave-like appearance. The 1095/15N20 steel used has an HRC of 54-56. The pommel and guard are also made from Damascus, and carry the same wave pattern as the blade. The handle is carved from camel bone, and smoothed for a comfortable grip. Pure brass and black leather inserts compliment the Damascus quite nicely. Included is a tooled leather sheath to house this beauty, though you may want to display it without the sheath.
