Description: Every so often there is a knife that is so spectacular that no photo can do it justice. The Damascus on this folder is tremendously complex and (in part owing to the wide range of steels contained within it) it has a tremendous color range including blues, purples, bright silver, and reds. The nickel diamonds remind me a barbed wire.
The tiger coral is meticulously dovetailed to the large Damascus bolsters. The spine and backbar have been fileworked and engraved by the maker. The screws and latch have also been engraved. The 15N20 liners have been heat blued and fileworked. Attention has been paid to every detail.
