Additional Description: 14K gold wire inlays in each bolster and in the Damascus filler bar. Antique gold coin is the lift-up-release mechanism for the blade. 14K gold skull with real diamond eyes is the push button release for this huge auto.

This knife was made back in the late 90's (somewhere around 1998 or 1999) and the customer brought it to the Blade Show just to show my dad that it still operates and is as beautiful as it was when he bought it...except for a few spots on the blade where the bluing has rubbed off, it's still in mint condition.
