Description: The Lost in Time folder clearly shows the influence of a steam punk aesthetic on Mastersmith Shane Taylor's work.
The multi-bar damascus blade combines three separate bars of damascus, carefully forged together into one of the most dramatic blades I have ever encountered. The edge section is formed from two bars of damascus, set in set into an opposing twist. This produces a pattern called Turkish Twist. The central bar is a mosaic damascus pattern depicting intricate gears. The blade has been heat colored to golden/purple hues.
The handle is formed from bronze and shows articulated imprints of gears, seemingly frozen in time. 15N20 carbon steel liners are textured and heat colored to a golden bronze tone. Both the interior and exterior of the 1084 carbon steel backbar is meticulously engraved with gears and terminates on opposing ends with a Celtic cross. The center of the interior of the backbar is engraved with Shane's mark.
The action is silky smooth and the blade well centered. The end of the blade is carved to resemble a gear and it is differentially heat colored. This makes it very easy to open the knife single-handed.
Exceptional work throughout!
