Description: Cliff Parker creates knives that push the limits of what is possible. Cliff spent considerable time over the years testing and experimenting to create a knife that is sturdy, but as low profile as possible. While Cliff often focuses on linerlocks, when he decided to build a slipjoint it can easily rival those made by the best in the industry! This gorgeous slipjoint is a perfect example of Cliff's world class work!
The 3-1/3 inch blade is forged from Cliff's own damascus, combining 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding. The dense pattern is extremely engaging and will have you examining the blade for hours. The top clip stops just short of being fully sharpened. Cliff's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth, consistent action with a firm half stop. The knife can be easily opened using the nail nick.
Handle scales are a beautiful green toned mammoth bark taken from the exterior of a tusk. Green tones are extremely rare and desirable in mammoth ivory. These colors move into the ivory while buried in the permafrost for thousands of years. The scales are fit perfectly to mosaic damascus bolsters forged by Cliff. Stainless steel liners surround a damascus spring. The gently rounded handle feels exceptional in hand. This is sure to be a favorite for any slipjoint collector!
Exceptional work throughout!
