Being a fan of Peter Marker’s work, I snagged this puppy up real fast when I saw it come on sale on Bladeforums. Peter is one of the best values in Damasteel folders out there, bar none. He is a relatively low-key maker from Australia, and does some fantastic work.

I had talked with Peter Marker extensively when I had asked him if he could make something in a light green annodized Titanium, as I had seen it used in RC Car parts. Apparently the voltage needed to get that kind of color is extremely high, and he tried to get the green but we were unable to do it.

This particular example here has a unique drilled and annodized design on the bolsters, and antiqued tan micarta handles. Blade is a odin’s eye damasteel, hollow ground in a clip point pattern. The knife features a single thumbstud and the inside of the titanium liners are engine turned.

The blade measures 3″ in length, making it a good gent’s knife, but still large enough for some medium duty chores such as cutting up cardboard if needed.

I do not think that Peter makes knives anymore, as his website is no longer available online, which leads me to believe that he has retired. If you want to get a knife from him, you will likely have to search the secondary market.
