Prototype of a gentleman dagger from Reese Weiland
This elegant dagger-gentleman is an exquisite work of art from an outstanding American knifemaker Reese Weiland. In front of you is the first embodiment of master’s fantasy – the knife prototype that became a progenitor of a sophisticated model of a suit flipper. Custom Prototype is a catch for a collector of author’s folders.
Reese is a great master of combination. Having an amazing taste, he manages to combine different materials in his works and creates harmonious designs. Look how beautifully caramel colored Damascus echoes with the liners from valuable wood, how the shagreen of titanium bolster and satin finish of a pocket clip balance the composition.
The prototype works great as an accessory. It fits perfectly with a tweed suit and completes your stylish look. Its functional advantages apply to an outing or more “sharp” urban jobs. We mean unpacking, pencil-sharpening, and peeling fruits.
Tactile sensations from opening the knife are not any less exciting than its design. Soft flipper tap and the blade slides from the handle as a feather to be caught by a reliable titanium liner lock.
A part of a knife guard functions as a flipper. The blade has a dagger shape which is perfect for piercing jobs and is comfortable for cutting. Premium Damascus provides decent sharpness and strength. Look how blade shape favorably underlines the Damascus pattern — flats cross the pattern right in the middle. Surface finish – artful caramel oxidation.
The ergonomics of a convex handle is proved by centuries of experience of gunsmiths. This shape lies comfortably in the hand and provides a good grip. To make the grip even better, there are wooden liners and rough bolster in addition.
Titanium liners held together by a long backspacer make a sturdy bearing frame. On the inner surface of the spacer, there’s a confirmation of the knife being a prototype – PROTO + author’s initials RW are engraved next to each other.
Pocket clip comfortably clips the knife on pants.
Reese Weiland Prototype is an elegant model, a functional knockout that easily, comfortably, and stylishly will play the role of an EDC knife. Custom from Reese Weiland will please an urban dandy and a demanding collector. Knife-prototype is the first for the firsts.
