Description: Featuring what may very well be the most detailed Damascus ever made, this folder is the last of 4 folders to use this Damascus pattern. A magnifying glass will show even more detail in the dragons!
Shane used a taxidermy eye for diamondback rattlesnake for the thumbstud. Gold leaf backing creates an amazing amount of iridescence. These are very difficult to set!
The textured handle evokes a dragon's skin, moving into fileworked scales on the backbar. This is some of the most spectacular filework I've ever seen.
Fully fileworked inside and out, ranging from the heat blued 15N20 liners, to the Damascus backbar. Even the screws have been fileworked and heat blued.
