This one is something special, Damascus clad 26c3 core with a forged integral, full tang handle. Perfectly balance for a pinch, the integral handle is very comfortable in the hand and although the knife has a very rustic hand finished look, there are no rough edges.
 
At 323g the knife has a good amount of heft to it and naturally the geometry is more in line with a workhorse than a laser. A little thicker at the spine than a typical Isasmedjan Honyaki or San Mai, but still relatively thin behind the edge. A good cutter with a confident weight and a nice, tapered spine.
 
The profile has a flat section extending about 30% the length of the blade before developing into a very subtle curve. The handle is angled down giving the knife a very powerful downstroke and taking advantage of that chunky spine thickness above the heel. Its a unique profile that is considerate of the tapered spine and allowing the user to take advantage of both the heavier, thicker heel and more tapered thinner tip.
 
The stabilised amboyna handles feels very comfortable, smooth, and luxurious. The brass pins are a nice touch that allows the beautiful amboyna burl to really shine. Completing the package is a stunning Saya carved from an amazing piece of Amboyna burl, full of rich red, black and brown hues.
 
Styling wise the handle and saya are a nice pairing with the stunning Damascus cladding and black, forced patina on the blade. Overall, a design that feels timeless and full of character. A true heirloom piece from our Swedish friend Jonas Johnsson.
