This custom built Bali from maker Craig Camerer is a highly functional work of art that’s sure to be a standout in your collection. The skeleton handle has thirteen steps of machined lightening holes placed to perfection leading up to his very own Loki’s Ladder Damascus.
Brand new direct from maker.
The Blade: Craig fashioned this large-bellied spear from his very own damascus that’s absolutely stunning to behold. It has a heavy hollow grind to contrast the ladder waves, flats and upper swedge. The spine has a shiny, clean polished finish leading to the joined swedge grinds and all culminating at the razor piercing tip. Both pivots on the tang utilize micro ball bearings for optimal buttery smooth operation. Fashioned and fit perfectly with zero play in all directions.
The Handle: This skeleton handle is marvelous. Weight reduction is one thing, but the grip it adds to the overall experience is quite nice. Completely open titanium construction has a clean effect that you can see right through. No liners or unnecessary add-ons to weigh it down. The inner circles were left a machine satin shine while the entire outer surface, including the edges, were heavily tumbled. Its contrast looks amazing. Craig put a light orange peel finish on the innards of the handle for that hidden gem. The handle’s theme continues to the latch. Minus the pin, it also is entirely constructed of titanium with three smaller machined holes and stonewash finishing. It operates on two brass washers creating smooth lockup in the closed or open position every time.
