The backbar, liners and thumbstud have all been fileworked. The scales are antique tortoise shell. The backbar has been inlaid with matching tortoise shell. The thumbstud is set with a 2.5mm garnet. Smooth action and a perfectly centered blade with a precise lockup. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
