Description: Johan's knives continue to impress me with the attention to detail. The dovetailed prehistoric horse shine bone scales fit perfectly to the Interlace pattern scales. The scales and blade of this folder are heat colored to bring out deep reds, golds and hints of blue. The 18k gold thumb stud holds a 0.05 karat diamond. The liners have been fully fileworked. The adjustable 18k gold stop pin assures accurate locking over time. Colors of this intensity are unique to Johan's work. 18k gold bail screws and thumb stud.
