Description: Mastersmith Steve Dunn is known nearly as well as an engraver as he is a bladesmith … and that says a lot. Steve, who teaches classes in engraving at the GRS school, has taught more knifemakers the intricate skills of engraving than anyone I know.
The blade is a mosaic damascus, and is easily opened using the right handed thumb nick. It has strong action and a 1/2 stop.
Gorgeous mammoth ivory scales are set on 416 stainless steel liners. A 416 stainless steel escutcheon is inlaid into the left scale. Showing his devotion to high precision workmanship and durability, Steve milled the liners for integral bolsters, rather than using separate pieces. Though this technique takes significantly more time, it results in much stronger, elegant construction. The bolsters are inlaid with 24kt gold and engraved in Western scroll style. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
