Description: Cliff creates knives that push the limits of what is possible. The action is super smooth and the blade perfectly centered. The folder is tremendously sleek. Due to the complexity of the mechanism, liner locks tend to be fairly thick. Cliff has spent considerable time over the past several years testing and experimenting his designs to create a knife that is sturdy, but as low profile as possible.
The accordianed Dogs and Bones pattern Damascus shows exceptional control over the steel, with highly detailed images (my hounds approved!). The Damascus bolsters and fossil walrus ivory scales are set on detail fileworked titanium liners. The Damascus backbar has been perfectly inlaid with three sections of fossil walrus ivory. 18k gold thumb stud for easy opening. Exceptional work throughout.
