aka. Jorg Nuffer from Germany and i was presented with this magnificent blade. Now after careful grinding, tedious polishing and some awfully messy episodes with epoxy, acid, vacum and modelling clay the knife is finally ready.
Handle is made from really odd holey eucalyptus burl - i have never seen tree grow like that. Holes in the wood are filled with clear epoxy resin so in some places you can actually see through handle if you look carefully.
Patternwelded blade is forged by Jorg Nuffer [link]
. Its honed razorsharp and from the sound of it should hold its edge very well.
