IP084WAL: Custom Wootz Damascus 084 Fixed Blade, Walnut
Igor Pampuha Custom Knives
 
Master Smith Igor Pampuha is one of the most highly acclaimed blacksmiths in Russia. He is as synonymous in Russia with fixed blades as Igor Shirogorov is with folders. He produces a reproduction of the famed wootz Damascus steel achieved by strict observance to the techniques, ingredients, metal hardening and forging methods. Wootz steel was so highly regarded in the ancient world that it gave rise to the Persian phrase to give an "Indian answer", meant "a cut with an Indian sword." Mr. Pampuha has achieved excellent durability and exceptional cutting properties with his knives; try one out and find out just how good this steel really is.

This custom model 084 will serve greatly as an everyday use compact hunting or bushcrafting tool. It's got a thick blade for stout cutting tasks and a comfortable handle for all day use. The 4.72" drop point blade is made from alloy wootz Damascus steel with a small finger/sharpening choil at the base. The pattern is not as beautiful as some other Damascus steels out there but it is tempered to approximately 61-65HRC on the cutting edge, so it's built for performance. The comfortably contoured handle is made from walnut wood with cast bronze end caps. The sheath is a simple brown leather drop sheath design with an articulating leather belt loop for comfortable, all day carry. This is a fantastic, high-quality knife design and with high-grade wootz steel smelted by one of Russia's best--it's a knife that can do it all and do it better!
