Description: Jason Clark is a part time, sole authorship knifemaker from O'Brien, Florida. He has been employed full time as a Florida Law Enforcement Officer since 1997 and knows what it takes to make a high functioning knife that is meant to be used. He even offers lifetime free sharpening for any knife he has made!
The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth, drop shut action -- easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The blade is hand ground san mai damascus forged by Baker Forge in North Carolina and hardened to 60 Hrc. The boot grind nicely shows off the damascus pattern with the dark core steel revealed in the grinds.
Handle scales are copper foil layered "Death Valley" carbon fiber made by Valley Composites. The scales are contoured to provide a comfortable grip. Bead blasted titanium liners surround a damascus backbar. The inside of the backbar is engraved with Jason's touchmark and Baker Forge 60 RC. The deep carry titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
A leather pocket pouch made by Jason's wife is included to keep the knife protected during storage or carry.
Excellent work throughout!
