96 mm - 3.78 inch close
(barrel measure) custom handcrafted barrel knife with damscus fittings
This knife has a barrel shaped body with carbon damscus steel fittings on either end, Norwegian birchwood body and Damascus stainless steel blade.
shaped handle houses a damscus steel blade folded on a pivot in between brass 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 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.
wonderful knife has been entirely hand made, the barrel is made of Norwegian birchwoodshell, fittings are damscus carbon steel and the blade is damascus stainless
which slides smoothly and securely into the knife body fix perfectly in the locked open position
