Nova Blades Custom Hellstorm Flipper 3.875" Nichols Wavepool Damascus Blade, Milled Titanium Handles, Timascus Clip
NVBHELLSTORM3: Custom Damascus Hellstorm Folding Knife
Steve Dumchus and Nova Blades are names you really need to get to know and know well. Steve has only been making knives for a short time but he's learned some tricks of the trade from another young custom knifemaker, Matt Christensen, and you can definitely see and feel the similarities between their knives. They're angular, solidly built, a pleasure to use, and supremely beautiful. Steve is doing some absolutely amazing things and we consider ourselves lucky to be a dealer of his and bring his products to you.
Nova Blades has a ton of designs in their arsenal and the Jigsaw is a very uniquely beautiful piece. The slim handle and blade profile make this design something you can consider tactical yet perfectly designed for everyday carry. This particular model brings together everything which is great about the custom knife market. Top-of-the-line materials, overbuilt toughness, hand fit and finishing, and opening action that is unlike anything else you've handled before.
This custom Hellstorm features a 3.875" slender tanto blade, made from Chad Nichols stainless Wavepool Damascus with a finger choil and perfectly executed thumb ramp. The handle is blasted then tumbled titanium with a brushed titanium backspacer and black Timascus pocket clip. Steve utilizes a caged bearing pivot and light, easy detent to create this slick action and you can open it using the flipper tab or black Timascus thumb stud. Ergonomics are extremely nice in both the forward and reverse grips and the knife is entirely constructed with Torx screws for easy adjustment. The lockup is quite early coming from Steve but that will give you a lot of room for it to move during the breaking in period. You can't go wrong with a Nova Blade, Steve is producing some of the finest knives we've seen lately and we can't wait to see where he goes from here.
