The Classic Damascus Folder Series is inspired by traditional Japanese design elements. The blades are made from a 33 layer damascus steel forged with a VG-10 core, except for MC-33C, which has a San Mai clad blade, also with a VG-10 core. The handles are all solid damascus steel with an anodized pivot pin and Teflon washer system. Each has an ambidextrous, one hand opening mechanism with locking liner. Each knife comes with a decorative woven Nishijin pouch.
