Description: Fred Ott's work is inspirational -- there simply is no other word to describe it. This sculpted ebony hunter shows off his tremendous sense of design and skill in implementation.
The antiqued blade is hand forged Cru Forge V carbon steel. This steel from Crucible is a vanadium-modified, high-carbon blade steel specifically designed to offer the forgeability of carbon steels such as W1, 1086 or 52100, while providing improved wear resistance in finished blades. The addition of vanadium promotes the formation of hard vanadium carbides in the micro-structure, adding to the abrasive wear resistance of the material compared to plain high carbon steels. The blade was forged to shape. A distal taper creates an optimal balance in the hand.
Bronze fittings nicely complement the ebony wood. The handle was hand sculpted and feels exceptional when held.
Accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath.
An exceptional addition to any collection!
