For those who are fascinated with the beauty and shimmering contrast of laminated metals, here a one of a kind friction folder knife crafted from two different kinds of pattern welded steel (double damascus). This san-mai construction has a body of salvaged elevator cable with some encrusted nickel; and a wavy core of high performance damascus, separated by a shiny nickel spacer; beornidas' signature lamination. This knife is based on the ageless higonokami design, but with the warmth and lightness of a wooden handle.
Blade is sturdy and slightly broader than the other higo's, to provide a larger canvas for the metals. Each blade and handle is unique, so the pattern of both wood and metal will be each time different.
This design is my ultimate offer at the shrine of the foldable knife; balancing aesthetics and functionality at the highest level, without compromises.
7,5 cm (3 ") long blade | 5 cm (nearly 2") cutting edge
The knife was designed with a very steep primary bevel, so for sharpening you can start a secondary bevel. This way you will keep intact and not scratch the damascus pattern.
The handle is made from a two-toned beautiful burly of red mallee and has a 3mm brass lanyard hole.
Made to order.
Please only buy if you have sharpening skills and stones, or plan to acquire them. Not for heavy duty applications. If properly cared for they should outlast the owner.
Legal carry in most countries.
