The Londoner Damascus Steel Liner Lock Folding Knife
A Londoner generally refers to a person from London, England, but in our case, it refers to one of the greatest American novelist and adventurers ever to live. Jack London. London began roaming the world at the early age of 14 when he quit school. In his early years, Jack traveled to California to be part of the Klondike Gold Rush. His life was filled with incredible adventures, including, sailing to Hawaii and Australia, train hopping his way across the United States during the depression, writing as a war reporter, describing and photographing San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake, and building a ranch in Sonoma County.
It is with praise and admiration that we name our Damascus steel liner lock folding knife after Jack London. Reading his stories, we like to imagine that he would carry a unique knife such as this. A solid 3.5” blade is the centerpiece of this knife. The handle measures 4.5” and will fit perfectly into your hand. The scales are made from solid Tali wood. A robust liner lock will click firmly into place as you open the knife, locking the blade in an open position. A thumb opener and metal clip round out the features of this handmade Damascus steel knife.
