Like glittering beams of sunlight filtering through dispersing storm clouds, Timber Wolf's Midas Fixed Blade Knife is nothing short of breathtaking - a rare beauty in a world of ordinary cutlery. Gorgeous, savage, yet surprisingly affordable, the Midas represents not only the apex of fixed blade knife design, but collector value, as well. The 5" drop point blade is hand-forged from high carbon Damascus steel - stunning on it's own, but the Midas ventures further, casting a golden spell over the distinctive, ancient steel. Employing a unique, painstaking colorization process, the blade's swirling torrent of contrasting ripples, waves and lines is highlighted and enhanced by a rich golden finish. The vivid gold hue blends seamlessly with the meticulously hand-hammered and folded steel, shimmering with an otherworldly boldness and sparkling with radiant luminosity. Hand-filed scalloping along the blade spine adds yet another touch of elegance to this spectacular knife. It's easy to get carried away with the Midas' incredible visual allure, but make no mistake - this is no mere showpiece, best relegated to the display case. On the contrary, the Damascus blade is robust and potent, with an edge carefully honed to razor sharp. The Midas is more than capable of tackling rigorous back country chores, and it's always a pleasure to wield, thanks to impeccable weight distribution and an ergonomically contoured pakkawood handle. Rustic and tranquil, the pakkawood's delicate woodgrain and mellow shades of umber, tawny and mahogany exquisitely offset the unabashed vibrancy of the golden Damascus blade and mirror-polished nickel silver bolsters. A reinforced lanyard hole is built in to the handle for easy tethering and lashing, and the Midas includes a handsome genuine leather sheath for convenient transport and storage. Whether hacking and slashing its way through tough tasks or being showcased in a fine knife collection, Timber Wolf's Midas Fixed Blade Knife always performs at the peak - a lofty, golden sun-drenched peak. This wonder of knife design is truly precious - a bladed gem to be treasured for a lifetime and beyond.
