The hand ground drop point blade is Thor pattern stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This high performing stainless damascus steel is created using powder metallurgical manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. It is perfectly centered. Ceramic bearings ensure it has silky-smooth, drop shut action. The textured front flipper is tremendously easy to use.
The handle combines a Timascus (titanium damascus) front and 6Al-4V titanium back. The front scale is polished and heat colored. The back scales is satin finished and features a Timascus pivot ring. The show side pivot cap is meticulously engraved and inlaid with 24k gold by Julian Marchal. Julien studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium and now lives in South Africa. The backbar and pocket clip are all matching Timascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry. The sturdy framelock provides strong lockup.
Excellent work throughout!
