Other Features: We wish to welcome back W.D. Pease to our gallery of handmade knives with this beautiful high art folder.  This piece is absolutely stunning with a great contrasting scheme of mosaiced pearl, tortoise shell and solid gold wire. To start with, Bill began this creation with some of the best materials available. He created the handle with small hand cut sections of tortoise shell, and matched up exhibition grade pearl to each piece.  He then incorporated solid 24k gold wire as a divider on all sides between these pieces of material.. The Bill chose ATS-34 for the blade steel and hand finished it to perfection.  Then he put a keen edge on it for cutting.  And for bolster steel, bill etched, heat colored and stippled mosaic damascus. Add this to Bill’s trademark filework on the backspacer and back lock, and you have immediate wow appeal !!   This modern looking folder is the first that we have seen like this.  It is extremely unique and original as well.  Bill, you did a fantastic job on this knife.  And, we are delighted to offer this to the serious collector as a centerpiece of any knife collection.
