Description: Des makes knives that have an intrinsic harmony. The high-tech materials in this knife are juxtaposed against some of the best that nature can offer. The silicon nitride for the indent ball and the release ball came from the space program. The liners are formed from Grade V titanium. The bolsters are meteorite from one of the largest strewn fields in the world and fell to earth over 4 billion years ago. The fossil mammoth ivory is 20,000 - 30,000 years old and has wonderful depth and color -- green hues move across a light caramel backdrop.
Des' craftsmanship means that this unusual locking mechanism works smoothly and comfortably. The flipper opener is easy to use. The ball lock release makes for an easy one handed close. Well centered blade with silky action. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
