This large yet compact folding knife was a custom creation for the 2018 Ludvika Show in Sweden, where it won 1st prize in the Folding Knives Category. The idea was to create a handy hunting tool with a slip joint locking system, and a small, built-in finger stop to avoid physical injury if the grip slipped.
For decoration I composed a Samic-inspired engraving consisting of repeated squares, triangles and fine lines. The unique Damascus steel knife blade has a beautiful rose pattern that complements the rare materials. As the components came together, the final knife revealed itself to be simple, functional and full of high-quality artistry.
