Description: Johan Gustafsson's folders have a spirit all of their own. This gentleman's folder features a very dramatic Damascus Pattern created by forge welding together several mosaic Damascus bars. For incredible edge retention, Johan has used 15N20 high carbon steel for the edge bar. The blade is opened with an 18k gold opener that holds a deep blue sapphire.
The double bolsters feature the same Damascus as the blade and have each been dovetailed to the fossil mammoth ivory scales for a perfect fit. 18k gold plated screws are used throughout. The titanium liners and blued carbon steel backbar have each been fully fileworked. An 18k gold lanyard finishes this piece off.
Excellent action with a perfectly centered blade.
