Like the vast, open ocean before a storm - dark blue and seething in a beautiful rage - Timber Wolf's Oceanus Fixed Blade Knife is nothing short of breathtaking - a rare vision in a world of ordinary cutlery. Gorgeous, savage, yet surprisingly affordable, the Oceanus represents not only the apex of fixed blade knife design, but collector value, as well. The 4 1/2" drop point blade is hand-forged from high carbon "raindrop" Damascus steel, unmistakable by its torrent of concentric circles that, together, mirror ripples on still water during a rainstorm. The distinctive steel is stunning on it's own, but the Oceanus ventures further, casting a brooding blue spell over the graceful blade. Employing a unique, painstaking colorization process, the blade's swirling melange of contrasting eddies and waves is highlighted and enhanced by a rich midnight blue finish. The vivid blue hue blends seamlessly with the meticulously hand-hammered and folded steel, shimmering with an otherworldly boldness and sparkling with radiant luminosity. It's easy to get carried away with the Oceanus' incredible visual allure, but make no mistake - this is no mere showpiece, best relegated to the display case. Like the awe- and fear-provoking Titan after which it's named, the Oceanus is robust and potent - more than capable of tackling even the most vigorous cutting jobs. And it's always a pleasure to wield, thanks to impeccable weight distribution and an ergonomically contoured pakkawood handle. Rustic and tranquil, the blue-stained pakkawood's delicate woodgrain and mellow shades of azure, cobalt and indigo exquisitely offset the unabashed vibrancy of the blue Damascus blade and mirror-polished nickel silver bolsters. A reinforced lanyard hole is built in to the handle for easy tethering and lashing, and the Oceanus includes a handsome genuine leather sheath for convenient transport and storage. Whether hacking and slashing its way through tough field chores or being showcased in a fine knife collection, Timber Wolf's Oceanus Fixed Blade Knife always performs with grace and vigor. This wonder of knife design is truly precious - a bladed gem to be treasured for a lifetime and beyond.
