More info

This is an absolutely stunning very large fighter from the Swedish custom knife maker Anders Högström.

The handle is constructed from an amazing example of fossilized antique walrus tusk.

The steel is the popular sword steel, 1050 carbon, with a double hamon line ( created by applying clay in a pattern). The edge hardness is 58-60RC with a softer, more flexible spine.

The fittings were carved in wax and then cast in bronze. Then they were textured and antiqued.

The sheath is crafted from shark skin.

Overall Length: 18 Inches

Blade Length: 12.50 Inches

Cutting Edge: 11.50 Inches

** The fossilized walrus tusk and shark skin were both legally obtained and were collected from animals that had long since deceased.
