Description: I was very pleased when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Bruce Barnett. For several weeks, Bill had brought up this Australian visiting knifemaker as a potential new maker for BladeGallery. When I saw Bruce's attention to detail, skill, and artistic eye, I immediately thanked Bill. It was with great pleasure that I watched Bruce complete the performance test on his way to becoming a journeyman smith.
This damascus folder features an elegant wharncliffe blade. It is made from Devin Thomas sharkstooth pattern damascus. The pattern is immediately captivating and detailed.
Mallee root scales fit perfectly to 416 stainless steel bolsters. The warm toned wood has a nice mix of light and dark figure. Liners and pins are also formed from 416 stainless steel. Smooth action with a firm 1/2 stop. Perfectly centered blade. Excellent work throughout.
