"East Wind."

I find it difficult to convey exactly what this knife means to me... I suppose it is meant to be taken as an expression of my feeling, perhaps beyond words.
The East Wind in this case blows from Asia... at night, over the sea and then the desert. It brings a hint of Jasmine and a fragment of haunting melody. It may portend destruction, but it does so with a caress.

Here is a knife that combines influences of larger, recurved fighting knives from throughout Eurasia.
It is forged from a bar of W1 steel, and the handle scales are of african blackwood.
The opposed tang is inlaid with copper wire in a simple scroll motif, and cold blued to enhance contrast.

Please excuse my terrible pictures. This is perhaps the most difficult knife I have ever had to photograph. The video is a much better reference as far as true details and aspect, and the hamon.

Cutting edge 10-7/8”
Overall length 16-1/4”
Max blade width 1-7/16”

Price is $1444 U.S.D. This includes insured shipping within the United States. For international rates, please inquire. KNIFE NOW SOLD.

Super hot spots, but conveys the whiteness of the habuchi-

Blurry, but it was the only way with my camera to get the whole hamon with no hot spots-
