Description: Frank Edwards began his journey into knifemaking in 2009 and started forging in 2011. He joined the American Blade Society in 2017 and recently completed a folder class taught by Mastersmiths Bill Burke and Rick Dunkerley. Frank has spent some time working alongside Mastersmith Burke in his workshop since the class, which has taken his work to a completely new level!
The drop point barbed wire pattern damascus blade was forged from 1080 and 15n20 carbon steel. The high contrast pattern is captivating and will have excellent edge retention. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to oil both the blade and premium spalted tamarind wood (Tamarindus indica) handle scales. The blade rotates on Teflon washers and has silky smooth action. It is perfectly centered and can be easily deployed using the right-handed thumbstud.
Handle scales are made from spalted tamarind sapwood. The scales are dovetailed to matching barbed wire pattern damascus bolsters. 15N20 carbon steel liners are heat blued and fileworked. The liners surround a fileworked 15N20 carbon steel backbar. Screws throughout have been hand fileworked. Frank's mark is engraved on the inside of fully fileworked backbar.
Excellent work throughout!
