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 clip point blade is CPM-154 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth, consistent action with a firm half stop and no blade play. It can be easily opened using the nail nick.
Handle scales are premium Sambar stag set on the 410 stainless steel liners using hand domed pins. Satin finished front and rear 416 stainless steel bolsters are perfectly fit to the stag scales. Frank's touchmark is engraved on the inside of the backbar. The contoured handle fills your hand and is extremely comfortable.
Excellent work throughout!
