A modern bladesmith rooted in the old traditions

W2 Fighters

Two fighters made of W2 steel with differential heat treat and highly polished to show the hamon. The longest is about 12 inches overall with a 7 inch blade and a Ceylon satinwood handle. The wood shows a shimmering effect. The other is just 1/2 inch shorter with a highly figured amboyna burl handle. The fittings are patinated copper habaki (Japanese niage technique) and buffalo horn guard with copper spacers and German silver pins.
