Description: Mastersmith Shane Taylor forges a spectacular knife, and this folder is a real masterpiece. The batwing folder is the knife that has most defined Mastersmith Shane Taylor's knifemaking career. He developed this style relatively early in his knifemaking and it certainly put him on the map. When combined with his skill of forging and engraving, the results are immediately captivating.
Shane began by forging out the Damascus billet for the blade and bolsters. A high contrast, complex mosaic pattern is formed by combining carbon steels with pure nickel.
The exhibition grader mammoth ivory scales are green toned with cream tones underneath. They meet perfectly with the bolsters in a complex arc. The screws throughout are textured and heat-blued to a complimentary hue. The blued thumbstud features engraving on the face. 15N20 liners have been heat blued and are meticulously textured. The 1084 carbon steel backbar has been engraved both inside and out. It features detailed interwoven snakes, depicted swallowing their tails, inspired by the Irish medieval masterpiece, The Book of Kells. As with Shane's other batwings, the handle fits securely into the hand and allows several grips. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
