Richard Spinale masterpiece, gold lip pearl handles, gold pins, engraved shield, floral engraved gold blossoms around some pin heads, and relief engraved gold flower bolsters. Gold toothpick fits under the handle. Engraved on both sides of the blade, and even the indent on the lockback bar is engraved. Inside the backstrap is engraved. Back spine is also engraved and inset with gold engraved floral cartouches. Spinale's engraving sometimes exceeds the work of his mentor and teacher H. H. Frank, whose influence is evident in Spinale's work. This later maker was not prolific, and examples of his work are quite uncommon to see up for sale. Here is a rare chance for you to own a knife of this exceptional quality. 4 1/4'' closed, 7 3/8'' open.
