Description: Johan Gustafsson is famed for creating some of the most detailed Damascus found anywhere -- and this is an exceptional example of his work.
The blade was forged to shape from Johan's multi-bar mosaic Damascus. Separate bars of mosaic Damascus were combined into one of the most dramatic and complex blades that I have seen to date -- the Damascus becomes all the more complex upon closer examination. Johan has spent years developing a complex heat coloring technique to bring out colors rarely, if ever, found in other makers' work. A firecracker pattern edge completes the blade.
The handle incorporates mosaic front and rear bolsters with amber. The natural amber is a brilliant yellow tone with darker and lighter veins. The bolsters are dovetailed to the amber for a perfect fit. The bolsters incorporate Damascus matching the blade. The scales sit on fully fileworked and anodized titanium liners. Full Damascus backbar. Gold plated screws finish out the presentation.
The blade has silky-smooth action and is easily opened using the damascus thumb stud which holds a ruby. The adjustable stop, unique to Johan's knives, allows the angle at which the blade is closed to be changed. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
