By BLADE Magazine Digital Editor, Ben Sobieck 

Words can’t do justice to some knives. Here’s one of them.

The American Bladesmith Society (ABS) selected Terry Vandeventer to make the Master Smith of the Year Knife for 2018. He didn’t disappoint.

Vandeventer posted these photos of the knife to Facebook:

“You can get your hands on this incredible knife when it’s auctioned at the BLADE Show June 1-3 in Atlanta. It was a pleasure to make and it’s going to a good and worthy cause,” Vandeventer wrote.


  • Feather-pattern damascus steel blade
  • Damascus fittings
  • Argentium silver and copper ornamental filework
  • File-worked frame handle
  • Museum-fitted woolly mammoth ivory

How You Can Get This Knife

“Professional photos will be taken, and it will be auctioned at the BLADE Show in Atlanta next June. Proceeds going to the ABS.,” Vandeventer wrote in this post.
