GTCPHANTOMDAMS: Custom Damasteel Phantom Folding Knife
GTC Custom Knives
Gustavo T Cecchini Custom Knives are the epitome of tactical art. Gus' distinct style, innovative features, and material choices lead his knives to be described as tactical, but there's something more. The way that each knife is finished and the attention GTC pays to the smallest of details is extraordinary. This knife will highlight any collection but should also be carried and used to get the full appreciation for this awesome folder.
This custom Phantom model is one stout, fantastic, and utterly gorgeous flipper. True to the GTC style, the flipper mechanism is modest in size yet highly textured for superb purchase and the action is superbly fast as it rides on bearings of Gus' own design. The 3.875" Bowie blade is made from Aegir Damasteel with a mirror polished then acid etched finish. This blade has a lot of belly for slicing and a large unsharpened top swedge for better penetration. It even features a carbon fiber on each side that makes this stunning blade pop even more. The handle is made from intricately milled titanium with a hidden hardware Chad Nichols Zircu-Ti clip, milled brass inlays, and new interframe lock design that only Gus himself could dream up.
The lock is milled into the frame as normal, but the lock bar face does not extend all the way to the edge of the knife handle. Instead, you have a small portion of the frame that is left to act as a lockbar overextender arrestor, causing you to think that this may be a liner lock. Rest assured, however, that GTC ALWAYS has something up his sleeve that set his knife apart from all the rest. Model, material and year of manufacture are hidden on the inside against the Zircu-Ti backspacer. This is a beautiful piece that would make an even better user and is one of the first GTC knives to use the new interframe lock design. Handmade in Riolandia, Brazil.
