Description: Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley's knives are unique and immediately identifiable. As one of the 'Montana Mafia', he developed liner locks with some of the smoothest action of any folder made today. He proves that washers create action that is just as smooth as bearings. This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made around 2010. It is in brand new, mint condition and by all appearances, Rick could have made yesterday!
This folder has silky-smooth, drop shut action and is easily opened with right-side thumbstud. The fielworked thumbstud is inlaid with a faceted sapphire.
The blade is forged from Rick's own mosaic damascus combining 1080 and 15N20 carbon steels to provide excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The complex mosaic damascus shows Rick's incredible skills at the forge. A heat colored finish provides a dramatic appearance.
Exhibition grade mammoth ivory bark scales are set on fileworked and heat colored 15N20 carbon steel liners. The liners surround a fileworked and heat colored backbar that is engraved with Dunkerley's touchmark on the inside. The mammoth ivory used combines rare blue tones with cream tones. Colors developed in the ivory as minerals moved into the ancient ivory across thousands of years. Mosaic damascus bolsters match the blade and are also heat colored.
A black leather pocket pouch is included to keep the knife safe while in the pocket.
Excellent work throughout!
