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 (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 -- this one measures just under 1/4 inch thick.
The blade is formed from Damascus steel forged from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The bolsters include pure nickel along with 1084, 4600E and W2 carbon steels, for even higher contrast. Cliff has created a central Damascus tile depicting a walrus 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 walrus ivory scales. The screws have been heat colored. Walrus ivory thumb stud. The fit and finish is as good as it gets.
