Anyone in the knife game today has heard the name of Chad Nichols. Chad has been making High Quality Carbon and Stainless Damascus for almost a decade. His innovative approach to creating unique patterns and custom creations in Bar Steel as well as Titanium has sky rocketed his popularity and to most Makers he is the go to guy for any type of Damascus or MokuTi product.   

 Most often his work compliments someone elses, Nichols Damascus has appeared in every major knife magazine and large scale publication. 


Steve Kelly started making knives more than a decade ago.  Drawing on his experience as a Hunter and Backwoodsman Steve started crafting fixed blade knives.  A full time Knife Maker Steve has been in the spotlight recently with his uniquely designed folding knives.

I was fortunate enough to score one of the last Collaboration knives from Steve and Chad – an incredible knife from two great Makers.  


This is a Full Grip Flipper in the highest grade materials!  All parts of this knife were made by either Chad or Steve. This is a package built for both Show and Go! 


This is a sleek, beefy knife – the Blade is of course made from Chad’s own Forged Starfire Stainless Damascus with a High Hollow Grind.


The Lock of the Moku-Ti Frame is very Early and Very Secure with a smooth release.  


 Of course, Steve’s Titanium standoffs were used on this project.  The Open Frame construction and Titanium standoffs offer great strength without adding weight.  


A super clean design that will ride easily in your pocket.  The blade fires effortlessly due to the Wonderful Balance and Bearing System.

The entire handle is Chad’s own Mokuti ~ the Ti Lock Stop and Pivot were Anodized Bronze to match the Moku-Ti. 


Matching Mokuti Low Rider pocket clip. 


This knife represents a nice blend of a Traditional Pattern and modern Knife making ingenuity.  Meant to be used and enjoyed! 

I have only one!
