Overview
This is an exceptionally fine piece of work, made all the more impressive in a double action automatic. Mr. Swauger hand forged the left twist/right twist damascus blade & frame himself. The damascus backspring is fileworked as are the ovals in the frame in which the abalone inlays are placed. To top it off, this knife works as good as it looks, the scale release action is smooth and fast with a solid lock up. Manual opening is equally smooth. Blade closure is via the scale release. This knife is number 005 of only five made.
