Description: Cliff Parker creates knives that push the limits of what is possible. The action is super-smooth and blade perfectly centered. He has created a very sleek profiled liner lock folder with a total thickness of .3". Due to the complexity of the mechanism, liner locks tend to be fairly thick. Cliff spent considerable time over the past several years testing and experimenting with his designs to create a knife that is sturdy, but as low profile as possible.
The blade is formed from mosaic damascus in a ZigZag pattern. This pattern is one that has made Cliff famous. The pattern combines bold patterns that are visible from a distance with incredibly complex details that only become apparent with close-up examination.
Matching damascus bolsters meet perfectly to the very rare, exhibition grade tortoise shell scales. The scales are set on 24kt gold foil, resulting in a dramatic iridescence. Dark browns and golden hues combine into a handle that you won't want to put down. The scales are set on fully fileworked, gold anodized titanium liners.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
