Damasteel is a Swedish powdered metal Damascus steel that is renowned for toughness, material quality and unmistakable beauty. Damasteel is a blend of two stainless knife steels and the end result is as high performing as it is attractive.

Because of the beauty of the deeply etched pattern we have opted not to engrave the blades with our custom alliance logo. To identify these unique Wilson Custom Alliance knives in the future we are supplying a personalized dog tag with the serial number and other pertinent information.

The Damasteel Deluxe StarFighter is limited to ten serial-numbered pieces, limit one knife per customer.

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky!
I received an email from another website that Brian Tighe had just come out with a solid Damasteel custom knife. It mentioned in the email Wilson Combat. I went to the Wilson Combat Knife site, scrolled down the list of sold out knives and at the end was the Tighe Deluxe StarFighter There were 10 being made available, four had already sold. I thought for a moment, very expensive, but incredibility beautiful in all Damasteel. I went to get my credit card and by the time I got back, only a couple of minutes, there were two left. I ordered and was able to get #9 - then all ten were gone. The knife, certificate and dog tag arrived yesterday. I am amazed at the simple construction of the knife. The look is pure art! It operates smoothly and is tight as a bank vault. I dont like a belt clip on a folder I prefer to pocket carry and I think it tends to hide the beauty of a custom knife. It was hell to remove the two tiny screws holding the clip. I had to go to a speciality store to find a screw bit small enough to fit into the screw head. Brian Tighe and Wilson hit a home run with this knife!
