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 two separate mosaic Damascus bars. For incredible edge retention, Johan has used a firecracker pattern Damascus edge forged from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels for the edge bar. The hand turned Damascus thumb stud is inset with a blue diamond.
The double bolsters feature heat blued mosaic Damascus 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 have been anodized to a sharp ice blue. Damascus backbar. The stop point of the blade is controlled by a screw in the backbar. This allows for easy adjustment and perfect placement. Excellent action with a well centered blade.
