Overview
Note from seller:

"This knife is part of a collection of knives which are now regretfully being liquidated due to a medical hardship. Rainy, whom I believe is one of the finest auto knifemakers in the world, was privately commissioned by me to create this collection. Most importantly, since I desired to have a very unique collection of autos, I personally secured all materials. Those materials included each set of presentation grade handles, the damascus, steel, screws and I even hand picked in New York the premium grade gemstones used in the knifes. In all reality, these are not just custom knives - but honestly a true creation of knife art. Finally, all knives have been stored in the open position in glass cases since the day I received them."
Rainy's experience with gemstones is featured in the article "Goo-Goo-Eyed for Gemstone Knives" in the Knives 2010 annual. This knife is from the collection referenced in the article and a fine example of Rainy's beautiful work with stones.

This Goblin side-opening automatic features a mosaic damascus blade, mosaic damascus double bolsters, and giraffe bone scales. Matching damascus push button. File work on edges of bolsters, push button, backspacer, and all around the liners. Opal inset in handle. Pearl inlays in backspacer. Strong and fast leaf spring action. Perfect lockup. A beautiful combination of materials. Excellent work. Includes certificate of authenticity. This knife just returned from the Vallottons' shop and looks brand new.
