Description: Back in 1997 Steve Skiff made a hatchet for his son in his metal fabrication shop. This led to making a few hunting knives for family and friends. Before he knew it, Skiff was attending knife shows and attempting to learn everything he could about the craft of making knives. These days Steve is known for making high end folding knives with a tremendous attention to detail and an incredible fit and finish rarely seen elsewhere. He is a voting member of the American Knifemakers Guild and belongs to the Northeast Cutlery Collectors Association (NCCA).
This custom Accomplice from Skiff shows his incredible machining skill and broad understanding of good knife design. The blade is made from Vinland pattern damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The resulting pattern is captivating and will provide excellent edge retention. The blade rotates open on caged ceramic bearings and has incredibly smooth action!
The handle is constructed from blue anodized titanium liners with TPT Carboquartz scales. This unique material was developed for Richard Mille watch cases. 45 micron thin layers of carbon are combined with 4 micron quartz-fiber filament. This composite combines strength with beauty and lightness. It is so revolutionary that it immediately won the JEC World 2016 Innovation Award. This Carboquartz has a high chatoyancy that shimmers in the light! Black Timascus bolsters add extra flash into this design. Black Timascus is created by laminating titanium and zirconium into damascene layers. A stainless pivot ring is made from Damasteel. The backbar is also made from matching Black Timascus. All the screw hardware is anodized blue to match the liners. The Black Timascus pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Absolutely exceptional fit and finish throughout!
