Description: Mardi, who became an American Bladesmith Society journeyman smith June 2002, is one of the true innovators of knife designs. His work is both creative and captivating. He has recently begun making folders and seeing the integration of his unique style with the constraints of a folder has been fantastic.
The blade is forged from a composite of a twist pattern Damascus (forged from 4130 and 1095 carbon steels, with a primary bar of Damascus forged from chainsaw blades. The ricasso has been sculpted. The scales are thick slabs of exhibition grade whitelip mother of pearl. These, two have been organically sculpted. Titanium liners surround a stacked anodized titanium backbar with alternating tones. Excellent work throughout. Nice action with a well centered blade.
