Master Smith David Anders
David Anders began Forging knives in 1989 and quickly gained a following for his attention to detail and his creative work. Anders knives have been featured in most of the popular knife magazines and books. Among the Awards he has received are: Best Art Knife 1998, Arkansas Custom Knife Show 1996 & Best Bowie, Las Vegas Classic Knife Show 1997 and Best Hunter in 2001 at the Spirit of Steel show.
David’s focus over the last few years has turned more toward high dollar Presentation Bowies so a working knife such as this is a rare treat.
This is a Hand Forged Integral or what is now called Brut de Forge in some smithing circles
The perfect sized hunter with all the great hallmarks of a superior knife, hand forged from 1/4" thick 1095 Carbon Steel it has a fine Distal Taper, a Tapered Tang, and a lined Thong Hole in the gorgeous Sambar Stag handles.
The thick Leather sheath is especially nice, it is Suede Lined and Trimmed, very finely finished! Beautiful work!
This package is extremely well priced.
Pre-owned but never used, carried or sharpened.
