Elegant dress tanto folding knife from the legend himself, Mel Pardue. Hand-forged damascus blade and bolsters match up great with the colors and patterns of the mammoth handle scales.
The hand-forged damascus blade has hollow grinds and mammoth inlay in the thumb stud for easy one-handed opening and closing.
Matching damascus dovetailed bolsters fit tight against the fossil mammoth handle scales. Hand file worked bronze anodized titanium liners and damascus spacer add a touch of class to this tanto folder. Solid liner lock design. KnifeArt.com is proud to represent and be close friends with Mel Pardue. Made in Alabama.
I found this knife on KnifeArt.com during recent checks of websites that carry custom knives. This was my second purchase from them and the experience was same as first time: easy to find knives by maker, easy checkout and payment process. The knife shipped quickly. It is a beautiful example of the makers work and exactly as described in the listing. I will continue to check back frequently to view the knives and would definitely purchase from KnifeArt in the future.

Having wanted one of Mel Pardue's folders for quite awhile I can truthfully say that I was absolutely amazed at the quality of his workmanship. Anyone interested in obtaining a folder that you'll be proud to own and show should not hesitate the next time one of his pieces is offered.
