Description: Mastersmith Shane Taylor makes a folder that you don't want to put down. The Damascus on this folder is tremendously complex and (in part owing to the wide range of steels contained within it) it has depth of tone. The dark canvas of the Damascus blade and bolster highlight the reflections of the blue topaz set in the thumb stud. The liners are heat blued 15N20 carbon steel and have been fully fileworked. The 1084 carbon steel spine is fully fileworked inside and out. Shane has fileworked his initials on the interior of the spine. He has lightly engraved the fileworked exterior of the spine. Attention has been paid to every detail. Even the screws have been individually heat blued and fileworked. The blade is well centered and has silky smooth action.
