It is amazing what you can get on a knife handle these days. The skilled artisans at Santa Fe Stoneworks have released a beautiful lockback with 150 million year old fossilized dinosaur bone. This handle is matched to an equally exquisite Japanese made sandwich damascus blade. Each one of these knives is truly unique, and is already an heirloom!

All of the brands we carry make top notch knives. The custom and limited edition products we carry are some of the highest quality knives on the market. But only Benchmade’s Gold Class series takes those excellently designed knives and advances them to the next level with extravagant and rare materials. From the hornet’s-nest damascus blade to the anodized gold titanium liners, the Gold Class 690-101 is a piece of art. Take note: The Benchmade Gold Class 690-101 is one of the most expensive folding knives we carry. But it is also one of the most beautiful and unique knives we have had the pleasure of offering to the public.
The blade of the Gold Class 690-101 is made out of a complex damascus. It is like a Rorschach test, with each examination revealing new insight. The mammoth ivory used for the handles is very rare, coming primarily from mammoths preserved in the Russian tundra. The bolsters are made of mokume, a Japanese style of metal very similar to damascus, but made with gold and other rare metals.
The collector who is looking for the prestige of a well made, rare, and valuable knife need look no further. This is the pinnacle of the art form.

Every now and then we get offered an amazing opportunity by our vendors. Recently, Bear and Son came to us with a batch of these bowies that they had made several years ago, but had misplaced in their factory. These were typically made with a 10.25″ blade, but, due to a mistake by the lazer cutting machine, these have a unique 7.5″ damascus blade. They also feature beautiful cocobolo handles and a leather sheath. These are Western Style Bowies made in the USA at really great prices.

Benchmade was integral in elevating the pen to a tactical tool. Now they are elevating the tactical pen to a work of art. This is not the first time damascus steel has been used in the shaft of a pen, but it is the first production tactical pen to be made available in this beautiful material. As with all Benchmade pens these feature the un-equaled performance of Fisher Space Pen refills. The perfect gift for the discerning, but prepared, father!

Kershaw Barrage and Zing with Damascus Blades
Kershaw released some beauties that are American made and sell at great prices. One model, the Barrage, is brand new and the first one we received is with a Damascus steel blade. It is a flipper opener -and, although not assisted, it is “blur-like.” The other is one of the new ZING models but has the same Damascus steel blade. We like these very much and will have plenty of stock next week.
