Other Features :  When it comes to the topic of handmade knives and ABS Mastersmiths, Shane Taylor is a household word.  Shane must be one of the most well known mastersmiths with a reputation for some of the finest work to come out of Montana.  This very special and rare piece, is one of Shane's beautiful batwing folders. Along with this piece's great functional competency, it is also a stunning work of art.  The gorgeous pinwheel pattern mosaic sports very interesting and colorful pattern of multi shaded pinwheels lines and spirals..  The handle scales are also pinwheel mosaic damascus as well.  The scales are secured by Shane's own handmade and fileworked screws that match the piece perfectly.  . The liners are also heat colored and intricately fileworked.  The backspacer of this lovely piece is also painstakingly fileworked by Shane in various geometric patterns both inside and out to form very interesting artistic expression.   To top it all off, Shane included a very nice mounted stone in the thumb stud as well.  A choice that is quite fitting and follows the overall theme of this beautifully batwing art knife.   If you are a serious collector of mastersmith folders, this piece should be on your small list of sought after pieces.  This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an incredible work such as this which is not just a slice of custom knife history, but also an incredible work of art that would be a great investment.  Shane usually sole authors less then 10 knives a year and seems to wins awards at the blade show every year.  What a great knife at a very reasonable price from one of the biggest names in the ABS.
