Just arrived! 52100 high performance steel and S30V high performance stainless steel (yes, stainless!). Lots of great chef´s knives, santokus gyutos an more are hidden inside these bars!
This is a longer clip point style made with an unusual blade shape in wave pattern Alabama damascus steel and with wenge handles.
One hundred knives made of damascus steel! And the 100th one is a sober and elegant drop point with a 4 1/4″ long blade in a tight ladder pattern damascus with Gabon ebony slabs.
My damascus creation number 099 is a super light neck knife wita 2 1/4″ long blade and a Japanese inspired handle composed of hemp rope underwrap wit black resin soaked flat cord over it.
Its been a while I showed you my second linerlock still in the works but that project has presented some problems and failures and I wasn´t happy with its overall design, so I trashed it and started this one, wich is inspired by the old Benchmade AFCK, a folder I used for a good while until it was stolen from my bag on a plane trip along with a Spydercard – I was paid for them but never got another.. This one, though is much sturdier and longer thans its inspirator, with a 4 1/2″ long Nichols damascus steel blade, 1/8″ thick titanium lock and 1/4″ thick black g-10, wich will still get some texture. Its a long way until it is finished but I am liking the results so far.
This was a customer order and has a 5″ lon damascus steel blade with African blackwood handle slabs and a leather sheath. It will be heading to Riorande do Sul later today.
