Description: Shane Taylor's knives have a look and feel all of their own. It is clear from knives like this why Shane remains among my favorite makers of all time. The Damascus on this folder is tremendously complex and shows tremendous control over the steel. There is virtually no distortion. The bolsters are dovetailed to the exhibition grade fossil mammoth ivory scales, which have deep blue veins across a caramel background. The screws have each been fileworked and heat blued. The blade is easily opened with the topaz thumb stud. The liners have been fully fileworked and heat blued. The Damascus spine has been fully fileworked and meets seamlessly with the blade. The fit and finish are beyond compare, with a perfectly centered blade and excellent action.
