Red Jasper, a form of chalcedony is an opaque variety of silica, usually found in red, yellow, brown or green in color. This mineral breaks with a smooth surface, and is often used for ornamentation or as a gemstone.

Mother of Pearl shares in a rich tradition in which shells of various sizes and types were used as currency by islanders and traders alike. Still highly prized, pearl-handled knives and guns are favorites among collectors.

Damascus steel refers to the legendary blade material of edged weapons used by the Saracens who made short work of the Crusaders in the Middle Ages. Although the process of creating Damascus Steel dates back to biblical times, perhaps the best known use for this steel is in the swords of feudal Japan.

The Damascus steel used in this knife comes from japan and is called "sanmai damascus" or sandwich damascus. In a very labor-intensive process, high and low carbon steels are combined as welded layers. There is a core of vg-10 steel with 16 layers of stainless steel on each side to produce a rust free damascus blade. Damascus steel is characterized by it's strength, edge holding ability, and it's dramatic appearance. Damascus blades are prized for their beauty, flexibility, and strength.

Due to the natural pattern variations, the knife you receive may be slightly different from the one pictured.
