Hand Forged High Carbon Blade on this exceptional pocket knife
Citadel have outdone themselves once again with their Roman gentleman's pocket knife. The blade of the Roman combines all of their knowledge in crafting traditional samurai swords. The high carbon blade (DNH7 from Austria) is hand forged and differentially hardened in the Japanese style. The bevel is highly polished and zero ground (no secondary bevel) creating a long lasting and extremely sharp edge. The flats are untouched after the forging, display the brut de forge scaling left by the blacksmith.
The overall design dislays a subtle forward curvature which acts similarly to a recurve blade in cutting tasks. The locking liner is stainless steel, with scales of a type of veined ebony wood called Troyeng. The large handle fills the hand nicely without taking up a lot of pocket room. Hand carved detail work on the spine and back spacer complete this exceptional package.
A padded nylon case with an embroidered Citadel logo is included.
