Description: Journeyman Smith Scott Gallagher makes an exceptional knife. I was very excited when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Scott at the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta. Gallagher's attention to detail is immediately visible in his exquisite knives.
The blade is high performing, low card CMP-154 stainless steel, hardened to 61HRC. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality to this knife.
The 416 stainless steel handle is hand inlaid with lapis lazuli. There is virtually no seam between the polished steel and this elegant blue stone.
This backlock folder has smooth, consistent action with a firm lockup. Exceptional work throughout!
