The late Jim Schmidt was perhaps the premier maker of fine, Damascus Folders.
His expertise in filework, forging and his eye for selecting only the best of materials.
This singular piece has some amazing Water Buffalo Scales, the only Schmidt that I have seen in this material.
Ladder Patterned Damascus Blade is approx. 3.25″, OAL is approx. 7.5″. Fileworked throughout, Bail release.
Bold Bolsters with lots of Nickle.
