Joe Kious Custom Knife Double Pocket Locket Automatic “Controlled Turbulence” Engraved by Barry Lee Hands

This Joe Kious Double Pocket Locket Automatic is so remarkable it's best to let Master Engraver Barry Lee Hands describe it in his own words.

"The most luxurious Barry Lee Hands engraved knife to date is called "Controlled Turbulence" and there is nothing like it on earth!

This piece features Barry's trademark renaissance leaf style on the frame in 22k pink, 24k yellow and 18k green gold. The brightly cut multi-color leaves are overlaid and intertwined with a fully sculpted scroll background with a French gray finish and is surrounded by generous raised borders of 24k yellow gold.

The 130 major leaf elements are set with white and green diamonds, and pink sapphires, as well as white diamonds set in clusters on the four corners of the frame on either side of the high polish file-work spine.

This is three times as much gold and four times as many diamonds and sapphires as we have seen in Barry's previous master works, amounting to approximately one carat in total weight of diamonds and sapphires.

The luscious renaissance ornament extends onto the polished dagger ground blade in 24k yellow gold. There are even six white diamonds set on the blade!

And to top it off the interior of the lockets feature Barry's gold work as seen through a window of exhibition grade exotic material.

This is the most elaborately engraved custom knife we have ever seen or owned and it is absolutely world-class in every way. Truly one of a kind. "
