  • This knife model is manufactured based on the drawings and sample books from 1932.
  • The body of the knife (skeleton) is composed of two stamped brass liners with each having welded pins made of nickel silver, a back spring, a guard attached to the back spring, a connecting piece as well as a blade made of meteorite Damascus steel.
  • The part resulting from “liners” and “pins” is characterized as a “booklet”.
  • The Damascus steel blade is made of high quality rare meteorite Damascus steel, making this pocket knife a precious one of a kind.
  • The knife’s scales are made of stabilized buckeye burl, complementing the blade’s steely color.
  • The blade is fixed. The unlocking of the blade occurs via a sophisticated mechanism, which is triggered by the guard, made of nickel silver.
  • For the manufacture of the knife’s body, the parts are permanently riveted together. This pocket knife’s production method is comparable to that of how the knife was assembled many decades ago.
  • The wooden scales, while still in a rectangular block shape, are carefully attached to the knife skeleton using nickel silver pins, and then permanently riveted together.
  • Completion of this pocket knife occurs after over 100 different steps have been performed by highly skilled professionals. The knife is made of high quality materials, is extremely durable, retains the sharpness of its edges, and is highly valuable.
