We just recieved this Inglorious from David and it is amazing , he is a complete Bladesmith and forges his own steels . The Inglorious offers a custom San Mai blade with Stainless Steel and a Carbon core 80cvV2 for ease of sharpening , the bolsters are David’s own custom Mosaic Damascus. The Scales are Amber Jigged Bone with stainless liners and spring , and the lock is a French Notch with stop pin . Virtually the same as a slip joint with very strong Walk and Talk . David’s fit and finish is fantastic , very high level with great attention to detail. Comes with his custom leather slip sheath , his leather work is excellent.
