SKKLGTSPDDAMLSCF: Custom Lightspeed Damascus Folding Knife
Steven Kelly Handmade Knives
If you haven't heard of SK Knives, it's time to start paying attention. Steven Kelly isn't new to the game and his designs aren't that mainstream but they definitely should be. He's been making knives since 2000 and has concentrated on tactical folders since 2009. That's given him ample time to conceive an array of excellent folders for both everyday carry and tactical operations. Each is 100% handmade in his own shop and Mr. Kelly even performs his own heat treating. Differential edge quenching is his preferred method--having the steel near the edge harder than the steel near the spine. This provides the best combination of edge holding ability and toughness in most applications.
Lightspeed is a universal physical constant that can quantitatively be measured at 299,792,458 meters per second. Or it's a speed that the Millennium Falcon can do 1.5 times as fast! However, in terms of knives, this custom SK Knives folder is lightweight AND speedy. The 3.375" drop point blade is made from Chad Nichols Stainless Fade Damascus and it flies out of the handle like an AUTO using the dual thumb studs, even though it rides on bronze washers. The handle has an ergonomic curved shape and is made from lightning strike carbon fiber and pocket clip with darkened titanium bolsters and liners. Steven has included some dimpled texturing on the lockbar face for your finger which is an excellent touch. The entire knife is put together with custom Ti Connector bronze anodized titanium Torx screws for easy adjusting. This is an absolutely fantastic knife that is at home both on the ranch and at church so carry it each and every day, wherever you may go.
