I had a local knifemaker make a set of three identical folding knives as Christmas gifts for my grandpa, my dad, and I, and he had one that was very similar already made for my uncle. The blades are Damascus steel, and the grips are (I believe) maple, but I could be wrong, but regardless I couldn't be happier with how they turned out:

I really need to get a decent macro lens, as these are taken with my 17-40 and 28-135. The last one is my least favorite, but it shows the spine cuts of the knife pretty well.

I didn't make them, I had them made by a knife maker in Kansas City. I wish I could make something this beautiful.

Side note: I decided to not give the fourth knife to my uncle (since I haven't seen him in over a year) so I am saving it for if/when I have a son!
