Description: Mastersmith Shane Taylor forges a spectacular knife, and this folder is no exception. Shane began by forging out the Damascus billet for the blade and bolsters. A complex mosaic pattern is formed from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. Heat bluing brings out exceptional contrast in the steel.
The mammoth ivory scales are burnt cream toned with hints of blue/green and are perfectly dovetailed to the Damascus bolsters. Carving nicely compliments the pattern in the Damascus. The screws are all fileworked and heat-blued to a complimentary hue. The thumbstud is a deep blue sapphire. 15N20 liners have been heat blued and are meticulously fileworked. The 1084 backbar has been engraved both inside and out. As with Shane's other batwings, the handle fits securely into the hand and allows several grips. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
