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). With a blade length of 2-3/4 inches, this knife measures only 1/4" wide! 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.
The blade is formed from Damascus steel forged from 15N20 and 1084 carbon steels. The bolsters include pure nickel along with 1084 and 4600E carbon steels, for even higher contrast. Cliff has created a central Damascus tile depicting a walrus in extreme detail. This is surrounded by tiny basketweave patterns. The bolsters meet perfectly to the premium walrus ivory scales. Deep blue tones in the ivory are particularly rare and develop across thousands of years and the minerals in surrounding soil move into the ivory. The screws have been heat colored and fileworked. The thumb stud is inlaid with blue walrus ivory.
The fit and finish is as good as it gets!
