Ray Johnson hand-forged damascus knife for sale. Blade length is 6 3/16 inches with an overall length of 11 1/4 inches. The forge welds are a work of art. Very nice blade shape, she cuts even better than she looks.
Hidden tang construction with hardwood handle and scalloped brass guard and butt. The knife has a nice heft to it while still being well-balanced and feels extremely secure in the hand, indexing very naturally. I have an average sized hand and the finger grooves are very comfortable. Of all my knives this I think this one has the most well-executed handle. As with any Ray Johnson, saying the knife is well-built would be an understatement, very sturdy.The blade has some very light indications that it has been carefully used, NOT abused, Just as Mr. Johnson intended all his knives to be, but still very sharp and in excellent condition. Included is the original Morris saddle shop sheath.
Sheath does have a spot that is blemished/damaged. I could ramble about this knife all day but if you are at all familiar with Ray Johnson's work than you know exactly what you are getting.As many of you know, Ray is no longer with us and his knives are next to impossible to find, especially Ray's damascus blades.
