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 mosaic damascus blade was forged to shape 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 is perfectly centered and has a firm half stop. It can be easily deployed using the thumb nick.
Presentation grade bark mammoth ivory handle scales are perfectly fit to front and rear 416 stainless steel bolsters. The bolsters are meticulously hand engraved by Edwards in floral scroll. Hand fileworked liners surround the backbar. Screws throughout are fileworked.
Excellent work throughout!
