Description: This eye-catching Mini Skirmish is an exceptional member of the Benchmade line-up. Benchmade's Gold Class knives are the best of their lines -- very short production runs with exquisite fit and finish. This HAND-CRAFTED, limited edition knife is number 163 of 195 made.
Benchmade began with their now-classic Mini-Skirmish design. The down-sized version of Neil Blackwood's HUGE Skirmish is a great size to have close at hand. Beginning with this original design, Benchmade proceeded to create a unique, handmade, high end version of their knife. Rather than leaving a plain titanium handle, carbon fiber overlays were added for a more comfortable, rounded grip. The blade was upgraded from S30V stainless steel to a stainless damascus. Pins, back spacers, the pivot, pocket clip and the thumb stud were plated with 24kt gold. The interior was jewel polished. The open body barrel spacer design incorporates decorative holes that are not intended for use with a lanyard.
The wide, recurve blade is formed from Grosse Rosen pattern stainless damascus by Damasteel. Large concentric circles in the damascus nicely compliment the bead blasted and anodized titanium frame and carbon fiber overlays. The jewel polished interior shows off bright blue anodizing whereas the bead blasted frame exterior is a more muted tone. Hardware throughout is a brilliant 24kt gold plate.
The knife is numbered on the blade and is accompanied by a custom presentation box and certificate from Benchmade.
