"If you would have your son walk honorably through the world, you must not attempt to clear the stones from his path, but teach him to walk firmly over them." Anne Bronte

Damascus steel and Fossil Oosik Ivory! Our custom lockback is handmade in our studio. Believe it or not, this custom folder has the rarest of scales - Oosik ivory! What a find! And at an afordable price! Damascus steel! Layers of hard and softer high carbon steel are forged together and folded a number of times to produce the 80-layered billet of Damascus steel (long known as the very best steel for knife and sword blades) for this blade. Only in the past few years have blademakers been able to carefully produce Damascus steel with very beautiful repeating patterns. The Damascus steel drop point blade used for this superb folder contains one of these new handsome patterns - the Spiral Damascus, in which final etching brings out repeating spiral designs connected with sweeping and graceful waves in alternating dark and light steel. (Click on inset to see details of pattern.)

The 3 1/4 inch blade is forged from carbon steel, and benefits from two-temperings: an oil-quench temper followed by a deep cryogenic tempering at minus 305 degrees, which removes any remaining unstable particles of carbon carbide and transforms the steel to its martinsitic phase to enhance its edge-holding ability. Its Rockwell hardness is 55-57. This is an altogether well-made, heavy duty folder. It is 4 1/4 inches closed. It has a brass liner, nickel silver bolsters and brass pins. Choose your liner from brick, black, red or white at a small extra charge.

As an added option, further customize the collectability of your knife by adding a hand-filed backspring!

This really rare treasure will become the absolute favorite of any collection! A perfect gift!


Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
