Description: Bruce Barnett is a Western Australian knifemaker living in the hills of Perth. Bruce is one of the fine Australian makers who is drawing the attention of the knifemaking world to the wealth of knifemaking talent in the country. Bruce's attention to detail and fine design aesthetic is clearly apparent in this elegant gentleman's folder.
The blade is Bruce's own hand-forged damascus -- a pattern that he calls Geometric Progression. The radialed, delicate angles of the pattern are immediately captivating. This folder features a wharncliffe blade that nicely shows off the pattern. The straight edge and detail-oriented tip would make it a great use knife -- though it will certainly feel at home in any collection.
Presentation grade mammoth ivory scales fit perfectly to 416 stainless steel bolsters. The bolsters are engraved by Amanda Guest. The ancient ivory has a dramatic pattern of caramel and cream tones with hints of green. Dark green striations run through the scale's smooth, polished surface. The blade has smooth action with a firm half stop. It is perfectly centered. Excellent work throughout.
