This damascus clad Aogami Super steel blade was forged to shape by Takumi Ikeda, but was bent and twisted beyond our skill set to repair. The owner sent it to master bladesmith Murray Carter who fixed it and affixed a sweet octagonal ironwood handle to it. Now the owner needs the money because...you know.
Blade: Damascus-clad Aogami Super (Blue Super) steel
Handle: Wa-style octagonal ironwood/micarta/G10 laminate
