Description: Frank Edwards began his journey into knifemaking in 2009 and started forging in 2011. He joined the American Bladesmith 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 damascus blade was forged from 1080 and 15n20 carbon steels. 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 damascus 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, fileworked thumbstud.
Damascus handle scales are set on heat colored and fileworked 15n20 liners. The liners surround a matching heat colored and fileworked backbar. Screws throughout are also heat colored and fileworked. The domed scales fill the hand nicely. Frank's maker's mark is engraved on the inside of the backbar.
Excellent work throughout!
