Description: Cliff is well-known for his themed folders, possessing the skill and patience to bring his detailed and technically complex ideas to fruition. Charmingly intricate images of stags, both along the blade and on the bolsters, are combined with exhibition grade sambar stag scales set on brightly anodized titanium liners to make a knife that is constructed as well as it is designed.
Cliff 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 approximately .4". Due to the complexity of the mechanism, liner locks tend to be fairly thick. Cliff spent considerable time over the past years testing and experimenting with his designs to create a knife that is sturdy, but as low profile as possible.
The precision forged steel has remarkable depth and movement, making the fine pattern appear lovely at first sight but reveal an increasing complexity upon closer examination. The bolsters, formed from matching damascus, meet perfectly to exhibition grade sambar stag scales. Chocolate and soft cream hues combine into a gloriously textured handle that you won't want to put down, the ripples and grooves of the stag complementing the radial pattern damascus perfectly. The scales are set on fully fileworked, blue anodized titanium liners. The thumb stud is inlaid with polished stag. The fit and finish are as good as it gets - stunning work, through and through!
