12 Jan Santa Fe Stoneworks Vein Turqoise Knife
Nestled in the foothills of the absolutely gorgeous Sange De Cristo Mountains in New Mexico, is Santa Fe StoneWorks. Each of their knives is a beautifully-made, unique piece of art inspired by the Southwest.
The flagship line of Santa Fe StoneWorks is the Damascus Collection, which uses Damascus Steel from Japan – called Sanmai Damascus. Damascus Steel is known for its strength and ability to hold an edge, in addition to its unique, eye-catching aesthetic. The line ranges from the Woolly Mammoth Tusk 3”, at a steep $525, to the much more affordable Vein Turquoise 3”, at about $95. The Vein is a small, handy lock-back knife that features a core of VG-10 steel, which is covered in 16 layers of stainless steel, to make it a sturdy, hefty, worthy knife. The handle is made of beautiful Vein Turquoise, embedded in its host rock, harvested from the rocks of Nacozari Mine in Sonora, Mexico, giving the knife a truly gorgeous, exotic look. On the other side is a solid wood back. And since each piece of stone is different, you’re guaranteed to get your own unique knife.
The knife is only 3.1 inches when closed, and extends to a full 5.2 when the blade is opened and weighs only 2 ounces. Santa Fe Stoneworks also backs up their knives with a lifetime warranty in case of defects. This is a unique knife you’ll be proud to carry, that will look good as a part of your kit, and that you’ll have for a long, long time.
