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 and scales are formed from matching mosaic Damascus. A bold spirograph pattern travels across the knife. Johan has spent years developing a complex heat coloring technique to bring out colors rarely, if ever, found in other makers' work. Here, the spirographs include bright silver, blues, purples and greens. The resulting Damascus is both visually interesting from a distance and captivating upon closer examination. The blade is opened with an 18k gold opener that holds a faceted ruby. The scales sit on fully fileworked and anodized titanium liners. Full heat blued damascus backbar. 18k gold plated screws are used throughout. An 18k gold lanyard finishes this piece off.
The blade has silky-smooth action. The adjustable stops, unique to Johan's knives, allows for the blade stops to be adjusted, assuring a perfect lock over time. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
