Description: Johan has spent the last several years developing techniques to bring out colors in the Damascus that cannot be found on knives by anyone else. The predominant color in this folder is a rich green accented by burgundy and gold. By forging an edge bar onto the blade steel, Johan has created a knife which will have especially excellent edge retention. The 18kt gold thumbstud and screws work beautifully into the overall color scheme of the knife, with the ruby thumb stone adding accent. The fileworked backbar is raised from the spine of the knife.
