Description: John Leitch's desk knife will feel as at home in a collection as on your desk -- or even used in the kitchen! The A2 carbon steel blade was etched with a relief for his maker's mark. This results in a "damascene" pattern that has made his work well known. The blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding, perfect for opening envelopes and boxes or doing any other detail work. A delicate floral scroll is engraved on the bolsters. The fit between nickel silver bolsters and the mother of pearl scales is excellent. Exceptional work throughout!
