Description

I realised that over the years, I had collected Damascus steel that I now wanted to showcase in a simple folder. This shape was a modification of a traditional shape that I had been making with Trevor Ablett over the previous year.
It also marks the first step away from the traditional Sheffield method of making slipjoint folders. In order for there to be no rubbing on the Damascus blade with it opened and closed, I machined the inside of the liners. However, unlike the ‘painterly sky’ and ‘stainless sun’ it is still riveted and has no washers.
