9 cm close (barrel measure) custom handcrafted barrel knife. This tiny knife has a barrel shaped body with Damascus stainless steel fittings on either end, ivory body and Damascus steel blade. The barrel shaped handle houses a Damascus steel blade folded on a pivot in between nickel silver liners, which sandwich the blade when closed and extend it when opened. On the bail/ ring end of the knife is a small spring lever, which when depressed will unlock the blade assembly allowing it to be pulled out of the wooden body. There is a *T* shaped channel cut into the inside of the barrel on one end only, that accepts the blade assembly. The assembly will only fit into this channel one way. The locking spring on the assembly, fits into the smaller portion of the channel. Once the blade assembly is removed the blade can be swung into its open position and re-inserted into the barrel and locked into place with the same spring lever that released it. Now it is a fixed blade knife and is very strong. The knife is closed by the same procedure in reverse. This wonderful knife has been entirely hand crafted, the barrel is made of ivory, fittings and blade are damascus steel with a thin red vulcanized fiber boardd spacer. Marked with the maker’s name on the nickel silver inner liners. The knife comes in a red velvet lined cocobolo wood presentaion box PRICE UPON REQUEST
