Description: South African knifemaker George Muller makes an exceptionally dramatic knife -- and at a price that would never be found from a US maker. The colors, textures and style all work perfectly together. The combination of marble carbon fiber, amber, and Gibeon meteorite immediately captures the eye and inspires the imagination.
The hollow ground blade is formed from Grosse Rosen pattern stainless Damasteel damascus. The bold pattern immediately grabs attention. The blade is nicely centered and easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
Marble carbon fiber handle scales are meticulously inlaid with sections of amber and Gibeon Meteorite. The Gibeon meteorite landed in Great Namaqualand, Namibia, Africa. It radio carbon dates to over 4 billion years ago. Gibeon fragments are spread over one of the largest strewn fields in the world, measuring 70 miles wide by 230 miles long and have a distinctive pattern known as the Widmanstatten pattern, which is one of the richest and most distinct patterns found in meteorites. The crystalline patterns can only form in the vacuum of space. The large metallic crystals require millions of years of cooling to form from a molten planetary core fragment. It has been estimated that it took about 1000 years for these molten pieces of planetary core to cool by just 1 degree Celsius!
The stainless damascus pocket clip is mounted for tip up carry. Titanium liners are anodized and surround a damascus backbar.
Nice work throughout!
