Description: Dellana's art knives are some of the most coveted pieces you'll find in the knife collecting world. A jeweler and goldsmith by trade, she studied under Jim Schmidt to learn the art of forging damascus. From her start in 1996, she began to incorporate her goldsmithing and jeweler background into her knives to create timeless and unique sole-authorship works of art.
The wharncliffe blade was forged into a high contrast ripple pattern from 324 layers of alternating 203E and W2 carbon steels. Dellana's 'double pyramids' fileworking pattern graces the full length of the spine, all the way to the locking backbar and around the heel. The blade is easily opened using 14k yellow gold 'Dellana dots'.
The handle is formed from two scales of exhibition grade whitelip mother of pearl. The luminous opalescence of the pearl displays brilliant shades of pink, green, and white. Bolsters are formed from oxidized sterling silver. Each bolster features a celestial images formed from solid 14k gold and meticulously engraved and textured. Liners are fileworked in a 'dentil' pattern. Dellana's hallmark is engraved on the inside front liner: "DELLANA LUNA SEA 2021".
Perfectly centered blade with ultra-smooth action. Dellana's skills show that backlock folders can be just as smooth (or smoother) than folders running on bearings. A rare piece with superb fit and finish and extraordinary attention to detail!
