Scott Cook made his first knife in 1991 and has only gotten better with each year. He is the very first knife maker to do the Integral folder and many have followed in his footsteps since his creation. An Integral Folder has the entire handle frame of the knife machined from a single piece of titanium. There are no stand offs, back-spacer etc. The entire handle is one piece, so if you didn't already know, it takes a lot of skilled work and many years of experience to come to this level.This is an enormous engineering and machining challenge which takes a lot of skills and knowledge. Since Scott was the very first person to create the Integral Folder, he has been doing it the longest and now has past the normal stages and has brought it to the next level. The FireClone Damascus is a complete custom steel made by that only Mike Norris makes! He uses Sandvik 19C27, D2, and 302 SS to create tapestries in stainless damascus in a pattern that is not just functional but also beautiful. Typical hardness for this material, when finished into blades, is HRC 58-60. Scott Cook hand ground this beautiful damascus to a flat Saber ground blade with a swedge on the front and top of the blade. This blade was finished off with a sharp V-Ground Edge. Installed on the blade are Solid 14K Gold double thumb lugs for manual opening. Scott Cook made a custom Abalone Bead to match the pivot and the largest circle inlay. There are six additional inlays of Mother of Pearl to offset the handle and change out the pattern on a contoured hand rubbed satin midsection. The front and back are textured for better grip and to offset the beautiful polished mid section but giving it more of a bolstered look. The side or where the spacers on a folder would be is still that one solid piece and it's also used as the blade stop. It is finished in a beadblast including the taper. At the butt of the knife, there are two holes made for the Lanyard for the custom made Abalone Bead on Black Leather Lanyard to match the Abalone Pivot Pin and Abalone inlay circle!
Right below the lanyard holes on the knife, Scott Cook initials the knife with a SC so you can tell it's his one of his real custom knives. This has a Solid lockup with a smooth manual opening Centered Blade! There is no blade wiggle or play in any direction as the lockup on this knife is insane! This will come with the box, Date of Birth Card, Tool, Ribbon.
Abalone Bead on Black Leather Lanyard, and wrapping. As you can see, this knife was finished in August of 2018, so this is about as new as you are going to get. This is Brand New: never used, carried or sharpened! These are my pictures and are my actual pictures of the model knife list for sale, unless I have more then one of the same knife, and if I do, I reserve to use the same pictures.
