This Persian style folder glows with its deep lustrous hot blued finish. A gold wire inlayed caldron depicts flames in the form of heat blued handle scales coming out of it. The full color spectrum AAA ammonite window inset adds live to the flame shapes. A princess cut faceted garnet adds to the elegance of the piece.
The blade was shaped from M. Norris stainless Damascus. Gold dots are pined into the blade to act as a thumbstud. A file worked titanium folder body makes the heart of this piece, with the liners being jeweled and anodized.
