Knife Of The Day XIX: Hogstrom Boot Dirk

Our Knife Of The Day for March 9 is a boot dirk by Swedish maker Anders Hogstrom. The 4.5-inch blade is clay tempered 1050 spring steel with asymmetrical grinds. The walrus ivory handle has orange tints and the fittings are antiqued, textured bronze.

    Anders, a BLADE Show regular who years ago apprenticed some under Japanese sword specialist Scott Slobodian, said the pattern is new for him, “sort of a classic style but then again not.” His list price of $2,200 includes a sheath.
