Description: This one-of-a-kind folder by Andre deVilliers features bold patterned stainless damascus by Damasteel and abalone scales.
The wharncliffe blade shape results in a detail-oriented tip. Hand filework along the spine ensures a sure grip. The damascus pattern continues from blade onto the bolsters. The left bolster is set with a abalone button. Depressing the button pushes the liner locking mechanism to the side, allowing it to be easily closed. Titanium liners have been fileworked, mirror polished on the interior and anodized. The center of the backbar has been inlaid with a section of abalone. The hand filework is nicely accented by satin finishing the flats on the exterior of the backbar after it was anodized. Attention has been paid to every detail -- even the screws have been fileworked. The thumb stud is inlaid with a faceted peridot. Exceptional work throughout!
