Knife Description

Karlo Ban was the first bladesmith I've talked to in person to order/design a custom knife. He is located in Zagreb, Croatia and it is well known in the local knife collecting community. All of his knives are hand-forged in his little shack and is recognized as an apprentice in the American Bladesmith Society guild. His knives have san-mai construction with Aogami 2 used as core material. Knives have a nice weight to them with a great taper to laser-like tip. Bevel grinds were made to my specification - bunka convexly and petty hollow grind. Knives have a great balance with kurouchi finish. They were made before the maker's mark era.

Small spots of patina/rust. Knife will be re-evaluated before shipping out. All major imperfections will be cleaned and blades will be sharpened.
