Description: Mastersmith Shane Taylor creates knives that have a unique sense of design that is all his own. Lightening Radial pattern mosaic Damascus is used on both the blade and handle. The deep red garnet thumb stud assures easy opening and represents the eye of the phoenix.
The all steel handle is impressive for its fine detail work and sculpting. Carved, flowing lines are accented with 24k gold inlay. A shadowed phoenix feather ornaments the bolster area on both sides of the knife. The screws have been fileworked and individually heat blued. The filework on the spine continues along the Damascus backbar. As you would expect, the action is smooth and the blade is perfectly centered.
This knife is accompanied by the original sketches of the phoenix feathers that were completed before Shane began his work.
