    Serpentine Composite Slicer- One off sale price.

    In aid of New year Bills and steel run, Im putting this truly amazing piece on sale price, and one of the most subtly beautiful blades I have ever forged.

    ON SALE - SPECIAL EDITION COMPOSITE DAMASCUS 310MM SUJIHIKI.

    £1290.00

    I have been using this piece over Christmas as a show piece, It will of course come freshly finished, I will also give the option of having the nickel damascus bolster Hot blued for an extra 50 pounds rather than etched. You can also choose to make this a custom order with a matching handled carving fork in blister iron.......custom box can also be arranged, enquire on pricing....In aid of buying a pile of materials I'm offering this composite piece for the price of Mosaic, a saving of over 400 pounds.
    This is a one off Suji in a serpentine damascus pattern, The centre of the blade features 4 bars of twisted mosaic damascus, the spine part of the blade is in Blister iron, this was reclaimed from a 1st world war cannon barrel, the edge is in layered 01. The blade has a very high level of finish to bring out the beautiful and subtle texture of the iron, you can see how the strands also flow with the Serpentine.
    This knife is perfectly suited to usual Suji work the geometry, length and balance will make it the perfect slicer, will also be a great carving knife as long as care is taken around bones.
    The handle is a variation of my Western design, this time keeping the octagonal lines crisp flowing throughout the handle to match in with the slender knife, I used finest desert ironwood, the most beautiful and stable of all handle materials in my opinion with a mosaic damascus bolster.
    Here are the knife specifications

    Materials are a composition of iron and carbon steels, will patina naturally with use.
    ​Blade length 305mm
    Height - 33mm
    Thickness entering handle - 5mm
    Thickness over choil- 4mm
    Full distal taper over the length,
    The knife balances just ahead of the choil.
    Handle is desert ironwood with red/nickel spacers and basket weave damascus.
    Overall weight of the knife is 234g
    The knife profile is relatively flat for 2/3rds then a pronounced belly to the super fine tip, perfect for working on long fine slices.

    Price includes World shipping, payment fees etc, the knife comes with certificate and knife bag. A Leather sheath or presentation box can be made for the knife at extra cost, piece is also available as a custom order with a complementary carving fork, enquire.
