The owner of this knife requested one of Broadwell's sub hilts with Persian and Japanese influences. His name is Yamane and he wanted his name in the steel in kanji. The Persian part is in the upswept blade shape. Broadwell collaborated with Mastersmith Tom Ferry. Ferry created the composite blade with the name Yamane in kanji in the steel, not etched on top of it. The owner's family mon, or crest, is carved into the face of the guard. Symbols associated with the family include Mt. Fuji, and Bro Pretty Knives, Mosaics Damascus, David Broadwel, Custom Knives, Sterling Silver, Weapons, Blade, Japanese Influence, Knife Maker
This Persian has a composite damascus steel blade. Dave Lisch made a mosaic billet and attached a twist pattern edge, then forged it to Broadwell's shape. It was then flat ground and carved. The handle is curly koa. Fittings were carved in wax and cast in 14k yellow gold, almost 2 ounces total. The scabbard was made from laminated layers of leather, carved, and overlaid in calf skin. Broadwell gave this knife a higher level of carving at the customer's request.
