Jonathan McNees Custom Tanjun Folding Knife 3" Nichols Damascus Tanto Blade, Westinghouse Micarta Handles with Timascus Bolsters, Spacer and Clip
MNCTANJUNTDAM: Custom Damascus Tanjun Tanto Folding Knife
McNees Custom Knives
Jonathan McNees has a distinct style which is personified in his designs, especially the Dixon and Skybolt folders. They are some fantastically engineered knives, built strong but not overbuilt just because they can be. They are designed for a specific task, at which they most certainly excel, with a little bit of flair thrown in for good measure.
The Tanjun is another one of Jonathan's models that is based off his Dixon design with some minor improvements. It's a slimmer, more carriable design with similar ergonomics that made the Dixon so popular. This everyday carry utility blade is a compact powerhouse that's built to the same quality standard as all other McNees custom knives. This Tanjun features a 3" tanto blade made from Chad Nichols Stainless Blackout Damascus with a beautiful acid etched finish. The handle is milled Westinghouse Micarta inlaid with ceramic balls, gorgeous timascus bolsters, and Jonathan's signature dimple texturing on the lockbar and cutout. The caged bearing pivot, ceramic detent, and hand-turned Zirconium thumb studs allow for very smooth opening action while a matching timascus pocket clip and backspacer pocket clip round out the looks of this impressive folder. It's an everyday carry/collector's piece you can drop in your pocket and forget about until you need it or proudly show off to your friends whenever you can—proudly handmade in the USA.
