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 .35". 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 blade and bolsters are formed from Parker's star pattern mosaic damascus. Highly detailed stars are forged directly into the damascus. The damascus on the blade was twisted to form an organic flow to the stars.
The bolsters meet perfectly to the presentation grade ancient walrus ivory scales. Blue tones in the ivory are particularly rare and are introduced by minerals in the soil where the ivory was buried for thousands of years. Anodized titanium liners are meticulously hand fileworked in a vine pattern. The liners surrounded a twisted stars pattern backbar.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout! Silky-smooth action with a perfectly centered blade and no blade play.
