Description: John Leitch's Acero is an exceptional folder. It is one of the finest production knives made anywhere in the world. The materials, precise tolerances, and finish are impeccable quality. John's design and specifications were meticulously crafted by one of the premier knifemakers in Seki, Japan.
The mirror polished ATS-34 stainless steel blade is precision hollow ground for a thin, high performance edge. It is easily opened using the thumb nick. Excellent action and well centered blade.
Front and rear bolsters are perfectly fit to premium blacklip mother of pearl handle scales. The bolsters were hand scroll engraved, one knife at a time, by Rex Pedersen, a longtime member of the Engravers Guild of America. An 18k gold art deco style casting was inlaid with a Linde star ruby.
The knife is accompanied by a vegetable tanned saddle leather pocket pouch.
Exceptional work throughout.
