As we saw with Wilson Combat’s Damascus Deluxe StarFighter Folding Knife a folding knife made of folded steel costs a lot of folding money. If you can’t stump-up $1495 for a knife to match your equally pricey Wilson Combat 1911, consider buying a Beretta 92FS and pairing it with some fava beans and a nice chianti. I mean a Beretta Buffalo Horn Damascus Knife. What the Italian gunmaker’s folding knife lacks in Brian Tighe-ian cache, it gains in affordability. $262 .50 plus S&H gets you . . .
A spectacular drop-point folder from Maniago, Italy, the “City of Knives.” This limited availability knife features an artisan-made, 3″ Maniago Damascus steel blade consisting of 250-270 layers of K720 and K400 steel with an HRC of 57-59. Finely polished water buffalo horn handle with unique color striations throughout the scales. Leather belt sheath included. 4″ closed; 7″ open. International origin.
There are no reviews of the knife on the website. Which goes some way to explaining the discount. Still, I like matching knife – gun combos. More to follow . . .
