Like the fiery flashes of spectral light and color that scatter across the sky to form a rainbow, Timber Wolf's Refractor Fixed Blade Knife is nothing short of breathtaking - a rare, polychromatic vision in a world of ordinary gray cutlery. Gorgeous, savage, yet surprisingly affordable, the Refractor represents not only the apex of fixed blade knife design, but collector value, as well. The 4 1/2" drop point blade is hand-forged from high carbon "raindrop" Damascus steel, unmistakable by its torrent of concentric circles that, together, mirror ripples on still water during a rainstorm. The distinctive steel is stunning on it's own, but the Refractor ventures further, casting a glittering, prismatic spell over the graceful blade. Employing a unique, painstaking colorization process, the blade's swirling melange of contrasting eddies and waves is highlighted and enhanced by a rich iridescent rainbow finish. The vivid hues - emerald, azure, crimson, gold and countless more - blend seamlessly with the meticulously hand-hammered and folded steel, shimmering with an otherworldly boldness and sparkling with radiant luminosity. It's easy to get carried away with the Refractor's incredible visual allure, but make no mistake - this is no mere showpiece, best relegated to the display case. The Refractor is robust and potent - more than capable of tackling even the most vigorous cutting jobs. And it's always a pleasure to wield, thanks to impeccable weight distribution and an ergonomically contoured Micarta handle. Tastefully simple in form, the ultradurable Micarta's delicate grain and subtle red-and-black "fireburst" finish exquisitely offset the unabashed vibrancy of the iridescent Damascus blade and the intricate ornamentation of the lone rosette set in the handle center. Two reinforced lanyard holes are built in to the handle for easy tethering and lashing, and the Refractor includes a handsome genuine leather sheath for convenient transport and storage. Whether hacking and slashing its way through tough field chores or being showcased in a fine knife collection, Timber Wolf's Refractor Fixed Blade Knife always performs with grace and vigor. This wonder of knife design is truly precious - a bladed gem to be treasured for a lifetime and beyond.
