Wilson Tactical, the knife and tool division of Wilson Combat, is currently offering a handmade Les George knife called the Damascus Sicario. The Damascus Sicario is a very limited edition folding knife with only 10 being made.
This knife is designed to snap open with a deft flick of the wrist. The four inch blade is made of Damascus steel and is curved. The titanium handle has diamond checkering with a carbon fiber insert. Wilson Tactical claims the opening of the knife is “smooth as glass” with “the titanium frame lock [that] locks up bank vault solid.”

|Hardware||Stainless Steel / Titanium|
The MSRP is $1,295. Although that is way outside of my budget for a folding knife, it is certainly in the realm of those who collect fine, hand crafted knives. If you want one, you should probably move quickly.
Les George is a former US Marine with an extensive background in EOD operations. In Iraq, he oversaw more than 300 EOD responses that accounted for more than 100 devices being rendered safe. He began making knives in 1992, some five years prior to enlisting in the Marines. More information on his knives can be found here.
