Description: Journeyman Smith Mardi Meshejian is one of the true innovators of artful knife designs. This knife is both creative and captivating with a playful blade that is both useful and enjoyable. This folder is a perfect blend of tactical art.
Mardi drew his inspiration for this knife from European straight razors. He forged the blade to shape from 1095 and 15N20 carbon steels. The bold ladder pattern is nicely visible from a distance. A large choil and thumb notch make it easy to choke up for more delicate cutting tasks. Don't be fooled by the blade shape because this knife has a razor sharp tip. The blade can be easily rotated out with one hand using the integral front tab and a liner lock securely locks it in place.
The handle is constructed from ancient mammoth ivory bark. The ivory is from the very outer section of the ancient tusk and combines cream and rare blue tones. The colors enter the ivory over thousands of years as minerals move into the ivory from surrounding soil. Basketweave mosaic damascus bolsters forged by Mardi meet up with the ivory scales. Anodized titanium liners surround a forged twisted Ws damascus backbar. The anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
