Comments
Nikolai Stefanovitch Compositov IV = Nambam 2 - copper habaki, cast silver pommel & handle throat ring with dragon menuki and bahia grass seed embroidery, nickel silver guard with vine file pattern, blade spine with same, sheath with silver chape and throat ring with dragon menuki. This is a prize winning blade and is named as it is since it is a nickel-1095 twist composite of 4 bars with an O1 edge bar - and was made by me (Stephen=Stefan). This is one FANCY blade!

Nikolai is a NamBam2 blade that is definitely over the top with regards to enhancements. Due to the mass of the blade, there is a safety pin inside of the mosiac pin -- an 8x32 set screw
