Below you will find my knives that are a good representation of knives I have made in the past. If you don't see exactly what your looking for, send me an email or give me a call. I have a wide variety of Damascus and stainless steels, unique mosaic bolsters, and an extensive inventory of Elephant Ivory, Mammoth Ivory, Pearl, and exotic woods. It is a fun experience creating a custom knife for a specific customer.

SK180

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock
BLADE SIZE: 3" Drop Pt.
TOTAL SIZE: 7"
BLADE MATERIAL: Chad Nichols HAZ MAT pattern carbon Damascus
HANDLE: Snakewood w/Gold Lip pearl diamond inlays
BOLSTERS: Matched to Blade
THUMB STUD: Mushroom with Tiger Eye inlay
LINERS: Annodized Gold to Bronze Titanium - Jeweled
SPACER: Annodized Gold to Bronze Titanium - Jeweled
COMMENTS: Often called the Diamondback Rattle Snake, this style is derived from the Gold Lip Pearl diamonds inlayed into the snakewood handle.  A nice light refraction effect occurs when the knife is "rocked" in the hands, causing each pearl diamond to reflect light at different times.  Smooth action, solid lockup, diamond filed backstrap, and 18k hand plated gold screws compliment this slippery little snake very well.

PRICE: SOLD!. 

Thanks Wayne!
