Description: Frank Edwards began his journey into knifemaking in 2009 and started forging in 2011. He joined the American Bladesmith Society in 2017 and has taken classes from some of the greats in the custom knife world including mastersmiths Bill Burke and Rick Dunkerley. In a relatively short time, Frank is creating world class folders that rival those made by his teachers.
The feather pattern 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 natural stag handle scales. The blade rotates on Teflon washers and has silky smooth-action. It is perfectly centered and can be easily deployed using the fileworked thumb stud.
Presentation grade whitelip mother of pearl handle scales are perfectly fit to matching damascus bolsters. The bolsters are meticulously inlaid with 24k gold accents. The backbar is hand engraved by Frank -- both inside and out. The combination of the engraving, filework, and 24k gold accents is particularly dramatic. Hand fileworked, polished and nitre blued steel liners surround the backbar. Screws throughout are heat colored and fileworked.
Excellent work throughout!
