Frank Niro Eggerling Damascus Knife
Another Beautiful carved folder by knife artist Frank Niro. Niro’s work is not well known, but he has a very devout band of followers that buys a lot of his knives, and they all sell. If you ever handle his work you will see why, as there are not many makers out there that will sell this quality of work for anything even close to what he asks for price-wise.
Bolsters and blade are both heat-colored Robert Eggerling Damascus. The Bolsters are Mosaic Damascus while the blade is Multi-Bar Damascus double ground to a spearpoint. All screws are 24kt gold plated, beautifully matching the elegance of the knife.
Beautiful presentation grade black-lip mother of pearl handles are carved and fluted expertly by Frank Niro, who does a fanastic job of this on a lot of his folders. Bolsters are dove-tailed. Backspacer on this one is file-worked extensively along with the titanium liners, with black lip mother of pearl inlays on the backspacer as well.
Genuine Cognac diamonds are inlaid into the backspacer and the thumbstud, for that final touch. This knife is absolutely breathtaking to behold, and handle.
