    Salem made these for me a while back....beautiful take-down Stainless San Mai Vest Pocket Fighter and an extraordinary Folder with Salem’s amazing Damascus.

    I've posted this before but I got this from Salem years ago...the East/West Bowie with wire-rope wrapped handle. It's a take-down but not necessarily recommended, I'll never fool with it. ;)

    A lot of well-done contrast on those great blades, very striking.
