Les George Custom FM-1 Folding Knife 3.625" Nichols Boomerang Damascus Blade, 3D Machined Titanium Handles with Marble Carbon Fiber Inlay
LGCFM1DAMMCF: Custom Damascus FM-1 Folding Knife, Marble Carbon Fiber
Les George Knives
One of the hardest parts of making custom folders is managing the variations of materials; steel not straight, titanium bowed and not the same thickness though out, etc. All these things play havoc with knife function and Les spends a lot of his own time on the custom knives fixing those inconsistencies. A lot of time! But it is all worth it when Les produces something like this.
The FM-1 is one of Les' oldest designs and we're glad he made at least one for the 2017 BLADE Show. It's the custom model that became the Talos mid-tech and then the production collaboration with Zero Tolerance ZT0909 flipper variation. It, like the Rockeye before it, is an excellent tactical design with the looks of a presentation piece. What we have here is a half-dress FM-1 with a 3.625" blade made from Chad Nichols stainless Boomerang Damascus and a 3D machined titanium handle with beautiful marble carbon fiber inlay. It honestly does not get much better than this from one of the industry's best and this beauty was 100% handmade in the USA.
