Description: This large gentleman's folder features a very dramatic mosaic Damascus pattern that is fascinating both up close and draws you in from a distance. Highly detailed mosaic Damascus was forge welded to a pure 15N20 carbon steel edge bar for exceptional edge retention. The blade is opened with an 18k gold opener that holds a ruby.
The double bolsters feature the same Damascus as the blade and have each been dovetailed to the fossil metacarpus horse bone for a perfect fit. 18k gold plated screws are used throughout. The titanium liners have each been fully fileworked. The backspacer is formed from blued Damascus steel. An 18k gold lanyard finishes this piece off.
Excellent action with a perfectly centered blade.
