Description: South African knifemaker George Muller creates an exceptional knife! This gentleman's folder was kept in a private collection since it was made in 2014. It is in brand new condition and by all appearances, George could have made it yesterday!
The blade is hand ground stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This high performing damascus is created using powder metallurgical steel manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The blade is hollow ground for a easy to maintain edge.
Ancient wooly mammoth molar features dramatic striations of cream and light tan tones. Bolsters are Gibeon meteorite. The Gibeon meteorite landed in Great Namaqualand, Namibia, Africa. It radio carbon dates to over 4 billion years ago. Gibeon fragments are spread over one of the largest strewn fields in the world, measuring 70 miles wide by 230 miles long and have a distinctive pattern known as the Widmanstatten pattern, which is one of the richest and most distinct patterns found in meteorites. The crystalline patterns can only form in the vacuum of space. The large metallic crystals require millions of years of cooling to form from a molten planetary core fragment. It has been estimated that it took about 1000 years for these molten pieces of planetary core to cool by just 1 degree Celsius! The meteorite has been dovetailed to the mammoth molar scales for a perfect fit.
Excellent work throughout!
