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. Scott's attention to detail was immediately visible in his exquisite knives.
The harpoon tip blade is Gallagher's own mosaic damascus, forged from 15n20 and 1080 carbon steels. The controlled pattern shows tremendous skill at the forge. The shape easily pulls you in for closer examination. It is easily opened by pinching a row of 14k gold dots inlaid into the blade. This innovation was originally developed by renowned knifemaker Dellana and so they are called 'Dellana Dots'. It has smooth, consistent action with a firm lockup.
The 416 stainless steel handle was deeply engraved by Gallagher in floral scroll. Each side is meticulously inlaid with two sections of natural green jade.
Exceptional work throughout!
