Comments: Here is a truly remarkable knife by the deceased Master Knife Maker Jim Schmidt. Besides making wonderful knives, Jim was best known as one of the early Damascus masters and a mentor to many fine current blade smiths - including Barry Davis and Dellana to name a few.

Generally Jim's knives were large and beefy, like the man, and this knife is no exception. Called Nevermore and finished in 1995, this is the finest example of a Triple-bolster Schmidt we've ever seen. It is pictured on pages 164 and 165 of the fantastic book about Jim Schmidt created by Francesco Pachi.

Here are all of the classic Schmidt details - the famous shape, the bold Damascus, the great back-filing and the wonderful bail. The liners are artfully filed in just the right proportion and the Presentation-grade Black-lip Pearl scales are superb. The knife is topped off with a forged bail and gold pins to hold the scales.

Pass up this masterpiece and you may never see another!
