"Damascus/ZirCuti Assasin" by Les George

We tasked the Master of the tactical folder Les George to produce another hand-made, bespoke Custom Alliance folder-the ZircuTi Assassin framelock folder.  This limited edition has a Nichols stainless damascus blade and anodized ZircuTi frame lock handle that offers a practical and stunning palette for the knifemaker’s art.  The various materials used in this ensemble blend together to produce an eye-popping example of cutlery art.

The Les George Assassin shows off a military flavored past with its purpose-driven symmetrical spear point blade and a built-in thumb stud for rapid, ambidextrous operation. The Nichols Stainless Damascus blade possesses the incredible piercing qualities of a dagger but is only sharpened on one side making it legal to carry in most jurisdictions.

This stealthy blade design gives the Assassin a unique tactical profile.The frame lock handle is machined from an amazing block of multicolored, anodized ZircuTi in a racing stripe pattern. ZircuTi is a forged Titanium and Zirconium laminate consisting of 6AL-4V, commercially pure Titanium, and Zirconium developed by Chad Nichols.  It is extremely dense and tough and has a unique chatoyance that changes in various lighting.  It makes a wonderful knife handle and every single handle is unique.  The backspacer is dramatic, contrasting ZircuTi as well.  To identify these unique Wilson Combat Alliance knives, we are supplying a personalized dog with the serial number and makers name.

Les George:

"I began making knives in 1992 and have been fortunate enough to have worked with and learned from some of the best knife makers in the world. The maker most responsible for my progression is Stan Fujisaka of Kaneohe, Hawaii. I had been making knives for several years before I met Stan, but he opened the door to a new level of knife making for me and shared his considerable knowledge with me freely. I will continue to refine my craft and to build on all that I have learned so far.

I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1997 and spent over 10 years in its service. I served as a heavy equipment mechanic, an Embassy Guard in foreign lands and a Senior Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in many of the world’s garden spots.  I have trained in Explosive Dynamic Entry, Advanced Access and Disablement, Improvised Explosives and Devices, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Close Quarters Combat and many other technical and tactical skills.

I have deployed to, lived and worked in Laos, Thailand, North and South Korea, Peru, Mozambique, South Africa, Iraq and many other places in between. Since my departure from the Marines I have worked as an Unexploded Ordnance Technician clearing unexploded munitions, from projectiles to land mines from old training areas.

As an EOD Team leader in Iraq, I oversaw over 300 EOD responses and over 100 Improvised Explosive Devices where rendered safe. All of these experiences have given me a unique view of how I think knives."
