Description: It is rare for Barry Gallagher to create a knife using steel from another maker -- but when he does so, it is because the steel is so spectacular that he felt it would create an even more spectacular and dramatic knife. This folder was made in 2000 and is in new condition. It has been kept by a single collector for that time.
The Fossils pattern mosaic Damascus on the blade has a strong twist, as thought he fossilized fish are swimming through an ocean current. The blade features the straight pattern. A tiger's eye thumb stud provides a sure grip for easy opening and closing. The mammoth ivory scales are dovetailed perfectly to the mosaic bolsters. All screws have been heat blued and fully fileworked. The Damascus backbar is fileworked inside and out. 15N20 carbon steel liners have been heat blued and fileworked. The blade is perfectly centered and has exceptional action
