Description: Van Barnett's knives have a flowing sense of movement and lines rarely found in work by other bladesmiths. The ladder pattern Damascus blade has been deeply heat blued and shows off the subtle coloration to perfection. The spine of the talon-shaped blade has been fully fileworked. The filework continues seamlessly across and onto the backbar. The thumb stud and bail are 14k gold.
Themes of gold and blackened steel continue onto the handle. The surface has been textured, with a central area mirror polished. Arches of 24kt gold move across the handle with 4 rubies set in each side (set in 24k gold). 2 'Dellana Dots' compete the arch of rubies. The liners are created from titanium and have been gold anodized. Fully fileworked inside and out.
As you would expect from a maker of the reputation and skill of Van Barnett, the blade is perfectly centered and the action is silky smooth. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
