Using Damascus and D2 steel, He spends many hours grinding, shaping, and polishing a blade to achieve the perfect blade geometry. Andrew enjoys the handle making process because it allows for more creativity by using exotic woods, leather, bone, horn, antler, mammoth ivory, and various stones and inlays.
