Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Direct Dealer for Mark Nevling of Burr Oak knives
~ Direct from the Maker ~
This particular knife is one of Mark’s most elaborate and Beefy Models – a Sole Authorship piece called the Coffin Nail Flipper
The Silver Twill Carbon Fiber Handle Scales are great but Mark has paired these with his own Jelly Roll Mosaic Damascus Bolsters that are precision fit and look awesome together.
The blade was hand forged by Mark and is made of a San Mai of 416 Stainless with a 52100 High Carbon Damascus core. This is an extremely labor intensive method to create steel (and it must be completed in a Zero Oxygen Forging environment in order for the San Mai to hold) but it provides an amazingly strong blade with a Core that will take and hold a Razor edge. The Differential Heat Treat and Etch clearly shows the Hamon between the two steels. Superbly smooth action on this knife!!
Mark has taken the extra step of adding some incredible Filework to the entire Anodized Titanium Frame as well as matching Filework to the Backspacer.
The Thumb Ramp also has Custom Filework which doubles as Traction Ridges for a Secure Grip.
Super smooth action, note the incredible Lamination Line on the San Mai Blade.
The blade Locks up Early and Securely with a smooth release!
Mark includes a Certificate of Authenticity with the Material details and Birth Date.
Also included is a padded zipper case
This is an excellent value for such a tough hand made yet attractive knife.
