With Zippered Soft Carrying/Storage Case
"Don't be obsessed with the idea that there is only one possibility. If you think so, there is only one. " Katharine Butler Hathaway
The graceful curved blade of our High-Carbon Damascus blade makes this knife not only very fuctional, but also one of the prettiest knives we've ever made!
Layers of hard and softer high carbon steel are carefully placed, forged, manipulated and etched to produce the striking Twist Pattern Damascus steel for the 3 inch blade of this knife. (Please click on the picture to better see the gorgeous Damascus pattern.) The welded full tang is mild steel to keep the cost of this 7 1/4 inch overall knife reasonable.
We complemented the oosik Ivory with a red liner and gorgeous Mokume-Gane bolsters.
Now for the beautiful bolsters... They are made in our studio by using the traditional Japanese technique of Mokume Gane, in which 5 layers of copper-colored copper are layered with 5 layers of brass-colored copper, and 5 layers of nickel-silver, all of which are forged, pounded, filed, etched-in-acid, and polished to produce a composite metal of beautiful Bird's Eye design.
This will become the prize of any collection. (It's also very functional, stable and tough!)
