An excellent example of my early work in pattern welded Damascus. The blade was formed by forge welding 5160, 1095 and 1075 high carbon steels. These do not offer a high contrast pattern so I used rice vinegar to give a light etch keeping with traditional methods of bringing out the pattern in low contrast patter welds.
The center section of the hilt is a light hardwood. The top is a thin section of bog oak and the pommel is white tail deer antler. The hardwood is entirely hollowed out so that the tang can run it full length.
Does not come with a sheath.
