Description: Johan is creates exquisite knives. Very nice mammoth ivory. The Damascus is extremely clean and defined. Johan has created a unique adjustable blade stop on this folder that I have not seen on other makers' work. Smooth action. 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 tones in this folder are rich 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.
