Comfortably sized, fiercely potent and strikingly beautiful, the Gethsemane Tanto Fixed Blade Knife from Timber Wolf is a multitalented stunner that makes quick work of practically any cutting task you throw at it. Its gently arched 4 5/8" tanto blade is engineered for maximum versatility, with piercing, slashing and cleaving power to spare. Forged from legendary Damascus steel, the blade is shrouded in a maze of intricate whirls, waves and ellipses - the result of a centuries-old metalsmith technique that involves painstakingly
firing, folding, hammer welding and acid etching premium high carbon steel. Damascus steel's radiant figure can only be achieved through primitive hand forging, and each blade can take days to perfect. The Gethsemane draws its name from the hallowed Garden of Olives and the ancient olive trees that grow there. Long revered for its age defying strength and beauty, olive wood lends its mythical elegance and durability to the Gethsemane in the delicately contoured handles. Like the complex patterns in the Damascus steel blade, each handle boasts its own unique grain, hues and figure - from parallel lines on light cream to elegant burls on warm amber and every combination in between. More than just a pretty face, olive wood's silky texture yields an exceptional hand feel that - combined with the Gethsemane's impeccable balance and weight distribution - makes this world class tanto a real pleasure to wield for hours on end. With its brass-lined lanyard holes and included leather sheath, the Gethsemane is easy to transport in the field, making it an ideal outdoor companion. Its graceful charm and breathtaking aesthetic allure make it equally well suited to display - on its own or as part of a fine knife collection. Our amazingly affordable prices make it painless to get two - one to use for cutting tasks, and another to showcase to friends and family! Get a third to gift! Regardless of what you decide to do with it, rest assured that with proper care Timber Wolf's Gethsemane Tanto Fixed Blade Knife will last a lifetime and beyond, making it a perfect family heirloom to be treasured for generations to come.
