=== Damascus Steel Ram Head Friction Folder Knife ===
Produced by ΛdiThiel – the ArchaeoSmith
I am Adam Thiele, Ph.D, materials scientist, engineer and smith. I use ΛdiThiel as a brand name for my products. The name the ArchaeoSmith explains my main activity.
This friction folder knife was inspired by the historical Novgorod Viking style folding knives. The blade is fixed in the handle both in opened and close state by the friction. In open state the back tail of the blade helps to fix the blade very massive into the handle, while in closed state the knife could be held on a belt hanger by the end ring of the tail of the blade (see the last picture). The handle ends in a forged ram head. The blade was made of two twisted damascus steel rods and is extremely durable. The multiple forge welding technology makes the appearance of the product highly attractive and special.
Orders are welcome for belt holder for this knife for $50 + free shipping, cf. the last picture.
