Description: The degree of refinement found on Johan's knives is something to be seen. The Damascus on the blade is intensely colored, with blues, golds, greens, and purples -- a range of colors rarely found in any other maker's work (and even rare in Johan's!). A deep blue sapphire has been set in the 18kt gold thumbstud. The backbar, which is surrounded by fully fileworked, bronze heat blued liners, is also created from Johan's Damascus steel. The adjustable stop pin assures accurate locking over time. The bolsters are created from matching mosaic Damascus and have been perfectly dovetailed to the mother of pearl scales. On each side of the scales, Johan has inset matching Damascus escutcheons. Excellent fit and finish throughout with smooth action and a well centered blade.
