Cliff Parker saw a Damascus folder in 1993, up until then did not know there was such a thing as a handmade knife. A few weeks later he saw his first mosaic Damascus which turned his world upside down and he has not been the same since. He started collecting knives until 1996, then decided to try his hand at knife making. Parker began forging all of his own Damascus; he enjoyed creating themed knives and forging beautiful imagery. He used material from whatever image forged on the knife for the handle and the thumb stud. All of his liners are fully file worked and features anodized titanium. Using nothing but the best material Cliff Parker knives are known for being very slim, light weight with very smooth action and first class fit and finish.
