This particular Creedmore is exceptional in part due to its simplicity and again in its style. The "Cotes de Geneve" pattern milling is typically found on watch movements and Allen has now applied it to this titanium frame handle. With a complex grind, resulting in a two-tone Damasteel finish, this is a re-design of the original Creedmore. This framelock folder has 2 heat-treated internal stop pins for added strength, a lapped pivot pin hole and teflon washers for smooth and consistent action.Allen's logo is engraved on the pile side of the blade and "Elishewitz 04" is engraved inside the handle. A very nice knife by Allen. Blade Steel: Damasteel
