Description: This Mel Nishiuchi folder is a spectacular knife!
The drop point blade is formed from ATS-34 stainless steel. It features and heirloom quality satin finish. The blade has smooth action and is easily opened with the thumb disc. It was heat treated by Paul Bos.
The scales are tiger iron gemstone. This Australian stone combines tiger's eye, black hematite and yellow jasper and has tremendous chatoyancy -- with a pattern that appears to change when turned in light. This is one of the most beautiful handles I have ever seen. Mokume gane bolsters were forged from brass, nickel silver, and copper. They are dovetailed to the stone scales for a perfect fit. The titanium liners and backbar are anodized.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
