This blade features a Damascus pattern known as “Vinland”. Each piece of steel is carefully selected so that the characteristic “grain” of the material is revealed and emphasised by hand grinding, polishing and etching processes; the latter a method we have specially developed to produce a knife of breathtaking beauty. No two knives will be the same.
Our Damascus F-S Knives are made for presentation purposes with blades without a fully sharpened edge.
Nominal blade lengths - cutting edge: 5 1/4" (135mm); overall 7" (180mm)
The front of the flat ricasso is marked with "THE F-S KNIFE" and the reverse deep acid etched with "JOSEPH RODGERS Star & Cross SHEFFIELD ENGLAND"
