Description: Mastersmith Kevin Harvey creates an exceptional knife -- often creating theme knives such as this one.
Kevin went to the GRS school for engraving early in the summer of 2004 and has been incorporating his own engraving in many of his knives since then. It is this engraving and inlay that first grabs attention when looking at this folder. On the left bolster, a golden trout is inlaid in 24kt gold and surrounded with semi relief scroll engraving. On the right side, a fishing fly is inlaid in 24k gold, showing tremendous detail.
The blade was forged from carbon steels by Kevin and Heather Harvey, both mastersmiths in their own right. Highly detailed trout and fishing flies are forged into the Damascus. A twist makes the trout and flies appear to be moving through water. The thumb stud and scales are both formed from whitelip mother of pearl. The scales have been selectively textured and shows off tremendous underlying texture, moving under the silky-smooth surface. Both the liners and backbar are formed from anodized titanium. The backbar has been fileworked in a detailed, scroll. Exceptional work throughout.
Accompanied by certificate from the maker and maple presentation box by Brian Coetzee.
