GL Designs Italian Coral and Fossilized Mammoth Tusk Damascus 4 1/4" Button Lock Knife
Santa Fe Stoneworks Masterpiece Collection
This outstanding knife is based on the second design by Miles and Anna Wirtel featuring a Wave Damascus steel blade and Titanium body. This knife is 4 1/2” closed with a 4 1/4” blade and pocket clip. This knife is inlaid on both sides.
This One-of-a-Kind knife is the fruit of a collaboration between GL Designs and Santa Fe Stoneworks. These knives are the result of the creative efforts that are inspired by the desire to push the limits of design and technique. There is only one knife available in each pattern offered in this collection, so once these are gone there won't be any others. Own something completely distinctive, from some of the most talented inlay artists working today.
This Damascus blade knife has a unique "cobblestone" inlay in fine Italian Coral highlighted with a center strip of Fossilized Wooly Mammoth Tusk. The coral "cobblestones" feature the actual uncut surfaces of the Italian Coral branches carefully chosen and matched for both color and diameter, which were then trimmed and meticulously fit to form the main body of the handle.
The undersides of Woolly Mammoth Tusks often show wear, suggesting that they were used in scraping snow and ice off of the ground cover of vegetation during feeding. They also used their tusks for protection from predators, attraction during mating and as a display of dominance to other Woolly Mammoths. We proudly show our respect by using this material in our best knives.
