Original design on a handle of Harpy Puzzled knife
Harpy Puzzled is a custom folder with impressive dimensions and a confident flip, created by the outstanding American knifemaker Les George.
The knife’s name is a pun on “harpy, decorated with puzzles” and “puzzled harpy”. Custom surprises and amazes. The pattern on the handle was engraved, the blade was formed of complex laminate. This custom is devilishly beautiful and extremely functional. It is a great item both for a collection and daily use.
The move of the opening blade is a breathtaking view. Push the flipper and the impressive blade flies out of the handle as a cannonball. The open knife is fixed tight by a titanium spring of the frame-lock mechanism.
Blade’s shape is a devilish combination of Persian and drop-point blade. The curved spine emphasizes the cutting edge, giving the knife some aggression. Centered point improves functionality: the knife works great both on a straight cut and when you stab.
Blade’s material will interest any knife lover – it’s famous San-Mai. The manufacturing process took place in the famous American smithy Nichols Damascus. The blade’s core is well-known super clean Elmax steel, which is characterized by good wear and corrosion resistance. On top of the core, there’s a multi-layer Damascus “coat”. Blade’s finish is a matt decoration of the surface, which resembles cooled coals.
Nail notch and a dimple for fingers on the belly of the ergonomic handle provide secure fixation of the knife and maximum control over it. Stylish engraving, that imitates the puzzle, not only pleases an eye but also betters the fixation.
To make the knife lighter Les George used standoffs instead of a backspacer. This decision refined the construction and brought some bright details to the decoration: the knifemaker covered the standoffs with azure anodizing.
A wide titanium clip fixates the folder on your pocket tight and treats the fabric with care.
The knife comes with a black zipper case.
Harpy Puzzled is a fabulous author’s flipper, which impresses with its look and pleases with the aggressive cut. Work of Les George’s hands – a companion worth a connoisseur.
