Description: Mastersmith Aaron Wilburn created this exceptional Kwaiken combining Western and Eastern elements into a truly masterful work!
The 4-1/2 inch damascus blade is forged to shape from carbon steels for excellent edge retention. The Firestorm pattern is high contrast and immediately captivating. The spine has been nicely rounded for comfort and the blade is distal tapered for excellent balance.
The handle draws heavily on knives from Japan. The full tang is set with alligator leather -- both giving a dramatic appearance, but also very slight, comfortable give. This, in turn, is wrapped with natural rawhide lacing. The leather wrap provides a sure grip and fills out the hand nicely.
This knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath formed from 8-9oz leather tanned by Wicket & Craig.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
