Description: Bill made the steel for this piece by first making three different figured bars of mosaic Damascus then cutting, stacking, forge welding those bars several times until he had a total number of 36 figures per square inch. The blade, bolsters and thumb stud are all formed from matching Damascus. The thumb stud is hand turned from a central mosaic flower. The heat colored titanium liners feature an array of colors running from gold to blue and purple. The scales are professionally stabilized buffalo horn with 24kt gold plated screws. The back spacer shows off a fileworked vine pattern. Exceptionally creative with silky smooth action and a well centered blade. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
