::Glenhaven:: by HundredHands ::Glenhaven:: by HundredHands
Uncommonly large for a folding knife, the Glenhaven Collapseable Saber was originally designed for close quarters defense against a lightly armored assailant. It is named for the shaded valley between the hills where I grew up. I know that this "mugshot" style of photography is really pretty sterile but I wanted to include this one for the series. I hope to post some better pictures of this knife soon ^_^

The 3rd Knife in my apprenticeship to Knifemaker, Larry Detloff of Santa Cruz, California.

Blade length: 5.25"
Overall length (open): 11.5"

Steel folded by Ferguson.

Blade & Bolster: Non-stainless Damascus
Scale: Ironwood
Liners: Titanium

I figured out it's a knife from the description, but how does it work?

:iconhundredhands:
HundredHands Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's a lockback folding knife.
Blade swings out and locks open *click*
Locking mechanism is released by pressing a button on the back, and the blade can be closed.
It's basically a pocket knife, but it's all custom and handmade and BIG.

Absolutely beautiful! If you don't mind me asking, how did you create the dappled and rippled effect on the metal?
Reply
:iconhundredhands:
HundredHands Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you. The pattern on the blade is a result of how the Blacksmith folded the steel. The Smith who folded this Damascus is named Jim Ferguson. After I shape the blade from the billet of steel, it is dipped in acid to accentuate the contrast of the materials.

this is really cool, i love the design on the blade and I like the shape of the blade as well. It has a good shape both open and closed and it looks like the handle is comfortable to hold too

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. One of the interesting things about making folding knives is the dual-phase design, making it work both opened and closed. Thanks for your input!
