Description: I have long been in awe of Charles Bennica's work. His fit and finish are exceptional and are met by very few makers. His sense of style and innovation are unique. It is no surprise that he won "Most Innovative" at the East Coast Custom Knife Show in March 2003.
The action on this folder is exceptional, and the blade perfectly centered. The side lock mechanism has been created with a unique dovetail for a very easy open and close. A fossil walrus ivory handled screwdriver accompanies this folder, which can be used to disassemble the lock mechanism.
Matching fossil walrus ivory inlays on each side of the handle have been meticulously performed. The butt has been sculpted and terraced. The rounded handle feels excellent in the palm of the hand and is hard to put down.
