This slipjoint trapper features a dramatic damascus blade. The riptide pattern damascus is high contrast and has a mix of bold and fine patterns. By beginning with 15N20 and 1080 carbon steels and forging to shape, Poor ensures this folder will have tremendous edge holding.
Amber jigged bone handle scales are set on 416 stainless steel liners. Front and rear bolsters, which are integral to the liners, are engraved with a floral scroll pattern.
This knife is accompanied by a custom leather belt sheath with matching floral scroll tooling.
Excellent work throughout.
