Description: Johan is creates exquisite knives. The Damascus is extremely clean and well defined, showing off deep purples, blues, golds, and silvers. 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. 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. Fileworked spine.
