GTC - Lamina
This is one of the most spectacular knives that GTC (Gus Cecchini) has ever produced and that is saying something! This is the Lamina and is a 2 of 2 as only this and one other have been built using Owen Woods amazing combination Herring Bone/Explosion Damascus. Further, these are the only blades of this material ever made in this style, it is compound ground as a modified Tanto blade. This incredible work of art features a stunning sculpted full Zircuti frame with an overlay of Meteorite surrounded by a decorative Titanium frame which is itself highlighted with vents, the finish is exceptionally well done with consistent bright coloring throughout, the pocket clip, which is set for tip up carry is also Zircuti, the floating back spacer is also Zircuti and is decorated, there is a lanyard hole and it flips open with ease utilizing Gus's famous SLT (Spring Loaded Tab) opening mechanism in combination with GTC bearings. This Stunner is new from the maker. If you want it, get it now before I change my mind and keep it for myself!
