This knife is one of Ralph Turnbull's classic gentleman's lock-back folding knives. It opens with a nail nick that "hides" in the Damascus pattern. It is stamped with his maker's mark "RT", on the blade ricasso. This knife features two beautifully matched scales of fossilized material, what appears to be a two-pattern Damascus blade, a different patterned Damascus bolster, titanium liners, and file-work running the entire length of the Damascus backspring. The blade locks open and closes with a loud snap. It sits centered between the liners. There is a hint of lateral play. This knife has it all - tastefully done, and beautifully executed. Comes in a "R. A. Turnbull" padded zippered case.
