Chuck Gedraitis YAKUZA Liner Lock Folding Knife with Hamon, Gold Lip Pearl Scales, Timascus Bolster
From Chuck's website (Chuck Gedraitis Knives)..."Ever since I can remember I have had a fascination with knives. My grandfather gave me my first pocketknife when I was 5, and it was that moment that did it. I started making knives by taking apart my mothers kitchen knives. My parents thought that there was something "wrong" with me because I had a fascination with sharp objects. That all changed when I took them to a local knife show and showed them a whole room of people interested in knives. I seriously began making knives when I was 16. I am now 36 years old and have been making knives for 20 years. For the past 10 years I have mainly concentrated on making folding knives and automatics. I mainly concentrate on making one-of-a-kind folding knives of my own design, but I do occasionally make a few fixed blades. I was the winner of the best custom folder award at the 2004 Shenandoah Valley Knife show. I was the winner of the best custom folder award at the 2007 Wolverine Knife show. I specialize in unique filework patterns, and I also do simple carving and some of my own sheath work. For steels I mostly use Damascus, but also use 154CM, CPM154, D-2, 1095, W-2 and others."
