***Exotic Snakewood*** also known as Letterwood, or Leopardwood, stands out as one of the most aesthetically unique woods in the world. It only grows deep within the jungles of Guyana and Suriname, an exotic hardwood prized for its highly figured grain resembling a snake skin pattern.
***REAL Damascus*** Forged from layers of 1095/15N20 with a beautiful tear-drop/raindrop pattern, each blade is unique.
Leaf-Spring opening. Some pieces are quite strong, but some may need to be held firmly to lock. A leaf-spring uses stored kinetic energy, like a grass-hopper. Kicking against the sturdy ground, it can jump very high.... but kicking in the air, doesn't work too well. This same concept applies... brace the bottom of the handle against your palm with a firm grip. This provides a base for the spring to kick against.
PRO TIP: Rotate your wrist to a palm-up position, and even a weaker spring will still lock when held properly.
