Damascus San Mai Folder - Ronin
San Mai Damascus Folder
These folders have gained great popularity as "the" foundation for the nicest custom folders on the market.
The frame is stainless, satin finish, and the blade is San Mai Damascus steel, no two patterns the same, each unique "snow flake" individuals.
Comes with a thumb stud attached and all assembled.
The handle is DIY. Looks great with mammoth, tooth or burls (brings the highest resell value). If you do file work on the blade, these blades can be sanded down and the grain regained with ferric acid.
A 50/50 solution of ferric acid and water dipped for 15 minutes will bring up a deep contrast of grain (ferric acid is sold at Radio Shack as an etching solution).
Closed length: 4-1/8"
Cutting edge: 3"
