This is a Matt Lerch Paia Dagger with his patented double action opening mechanism (when you push the button on the handle the blade pops up enough to grasp it and complete the opening process, it closes as any other liner lock. Once you activate the hidden mechanism inside the liner, by pushing on the inside of the backbar, the knife now functions as an automatic with the same release button allowing the blade to fully open. Pressing the gold skull crusher resets the mechanism so it is no longer an auto). Other features of this knife are the frame & blade which are made of Mike Norris' double stainless ladder pattern Damascus, mild stainless inlays were used for the engraving. The hand sculpted skull crusher is also 18kt Gold. The scroll engraving on the frame and on the blade itself is gold inlay in a liberty style with dot shading, the hair of the lovelies is antiqued shakudo and the skin tone is a 19kt gold alloy, Brian developed the alloy and techniques for both the hair and skin, the black trimmed lingerie for both of the beauties is 14kt red gold. This is one of the most outstanding knives you will ever encounter. The combination of design, engineering, creativity and art make this a masterpiece worthy of any collection or museum in the world.
