We sold a Merlin in twisted Damascus at Blade earlier this year and the customer decided he really needed a matching Zulu. Thankfully Scott had just enough steel left from the original billet to make that wish come true. Check it out. This beauty is headed to Germany.
And here's the metamorphosis from rough forged to finished.
Hot off the anvil to hot off the grinder.
Dressed in African Blackwood with stainless guard and a couple of nice spacers.
The blade is blued for a nice effect, and here's the Blue Merlin that inspired this creation.
Thanks for looking.
