The Blade: The utilitarian drop point blade is made from a dark etched Damascus with crowned and file worked spine details. The blade opens with a glassy smoothness via a finely detailed gold anodized thumb stud. The "JWS" logo is stamped on the blade tang.

The Handle: The handle on this knife is a true work of art. Gold anodized liners house a crowned and file worked back spacer that matches the spine of the blade. Inside the liners you will fine Engine Turning, a form of fine machine work that forms a repeating motif. On the outside of the liners are beautiful Damascus bolsters diamond patterned peral handle scales that are held on by fine jeweled screws.
