Description: Journeyman Smith Mardi Meshejian is one of the true innovators of artful knife designs. This knife is both creative and captivating with a playful blade that is both useful and enjoyable. This folder is a perfect blend of tactical art.
Mardi drew his inspiration for this knife from European straight razors. He forged the damascus from 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels. The bold twisted Ws pattern is nicely visible from a distance. A large choil and thumb notch make it easy to choke up for more delicate cutting tasks. The clipped blade moves into a razor sharp tip. It can be easily rotated out with one hand using the integral front tab. A locking liner securely locks it in place.
The handle is constructed from ancient mammoth ivory bark. The ivory is from the very outer section of the ancient tusk and combines cream and rare blue tones. The colors enter the ivory over thousands of years as minerals move into the ivory from surrounding soil. The mammoth ivory is fit to forged superconductor bolsters. Superconductor cable is made up of many titanium-niobium alloy rods, which are then insulated with copper and formed into a large cable. A cross-section wafer of cable is cut at an angle and forged to create the sculpted bolster. Handle scales are set on textured green anodized titanium liners that surround a forged damascus backbar. The integral front tab can also be used as a pocket clip which hangs the knife sideways in the pocket.
Excellent work throughout!
