Description: Wade's knives have a spirit of their own. Part of this is the amazing fit and finish found on all his knives, but much of it is not entirely describable, but is only something that can be felt.
The Damascus steel on this piece has a particularly dramatic etch that is set off by the golden coloring of the blade and bolsters. The bold pattern works especially well on the sculpted bolsters. Modified vine pattern filework covers the backbar, both inside and out. All screws have been detail fileworked. The 15N20 liners have been heat blued and filed. The scales are sculpted for a perfect feel in the hand and an elegant appearance. The fit and finish is perfect, with the blade dead center. Excellent action.
