C Gray Tayor - Sleeveboard - sold
This is one of C Gray Taylor's Top of the Line Art Knives, a Sleeveboard model featuring Tortoise shell scales inlayed with a pattern of Green Gold stems & leaves and Rose Gold flowers engraved by Lisa Tomlin. The liners are 14k gold with file worked edges throughout (his top of the line and most desirable knives are those with Gold liners), the pins are gold, and the tip bolsters are gold file worked in a clam shell pattern and the knife is presented in a handmade leather case. Note that the scissors have a gold screw and gold leaf spring. I am the original owner, this piece has been in my collection, in the safe, since Gray made it for me. A true work of art for the discerning collector from one of (if not the most) talented multi-blade slip joint makers in the world. An opportunity not to be missed.
