I have crafted the knife from Damascus that has been forged out of Meteorite, O1 and L6 in a tight ladder pattern by well respected maker Brian Lyttle (1943 - 2016) of Alberta, Canada.
Simple brush finished stainless bolsters are invisible fastened and if desired could be embellished by engraving.
Mammoth scales make the handle. Both the mammoth scales, as well as the bolster have been invisible fastened to the tang in an interlocking fashion, so as not to take away from the beauty and flow of the materials.
A turned Damascus pin cover adds as simple decoration. A slim wet molded leather sheath accompanies this knife.
