Description: With one of the most impressive Damascus patterns that I've seen, Cliff has created a truly beautiful knife.
Cliff creates knives that push the limits of what is possible. The action is super smooth and blade perfectly centered. Here, he has created a very sleek profiled liner lock folder with a total thickness of .33". 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 blade is formed from Damascus steel forged from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The bolsters include pure nickel for even higher contrast. Cliff has created a central tile depicting a wooly mammoth in extreme detail. This is surrounded by tiny radial patterns, with Cliff's hallmark, 'CP' forged into the background. The bolsters meet perfectly to the premium mammoth ivory scales. The screws have been detail fileworked and heat colored. Mammoth ivory thumb stud. The fit and finish is as good as it gets. The action is silky smooth. The blade is perfectly centered.
