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 the great American bladesmiths of all time.
The Damascus on this folder is tremendously complex and shows high control over the steel. Four different carbon steels were forged together to create slight differences in tone and color. Complex Celtic knots show tremendous detail and are also shown in negative. The leaf blade is forged to shape and nicely incorporates the complex patterns. Sculpting as the blade approaches the handle gives tremendous flow to the piece. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky smooth action. It is easily opened using the faceted ruby thumb stud.
Matching heat colored Damascus scales sit on fileworked and heat blued 15N20 carbon steel liners. The screws have each been engraved and heat colored. The 1084 carbon steel spine has been antiqued and engraved (both inside and out) into detailed Celtic knots reflecting the patterns in the Damascus. The fit and finish are beyond compare.
