Stolen Steigerwalt/Barry Hands Folder

Friends everywhere: I received this alert and photo from engraver Barry Lee Hands today. Please share this notice, if you would and keep an eye out for this knife, which was recently stolen from a Federal Express shipment:

Hello folks,
I am giving you a heads up about a Steigerwalt which was intended for AKI which apparently has been stolen from the FEDEX facility in Northwood Ohio.
It was being sent out for photography, scanned into the facility at 8:29 am 9/15/2015, and according to FEDEX , never seen again.
attached is an ehanced snapshot and a description.
It is marked Steigerwalt AKI on the inside of the spring.
Please circulate this to your associates, as I figure it may show up someday.
Thank you very much.
All the best,
Barry Lee Hands

Here is the description for the Art Knife Invitational 2015 catalogue:

Knife #1
TECHNO
?Techno? is the first and latest stylistic creation by Ken Steigerwalt and the engraver Barry Lee Hands.
Presenting the 21st century reinterpretation of Art Deco, and giving us a breathtaking glimpse into the future, this piece is a logical next step in the development of superlative post- industrial ornament.
The closed length of the knife is 4-9/16 inches. The blade material is CPM 154, inlaid by the maker with 14k gold. The handle frame is 416 stainless inlayed by the maker with black Pen Shell and 14K gold.
Barry invented this completely new and original style of ornament for the edgier type of art knife, and in keeping with this thought the work was executed with a complicated pattern featuring geometric design elements of overlayed multicolored gold connected by tiny multicolored gold tracings inlaid to the steel.
Hundreds of diamonds of the best quality are set in the blade, spring, release and the frame.
Combining the clean lines of Ken?s dagger and Barry?s latest engraving style - debuting here at the Art Knife invitational - this work of art presents us with a piece of brilliance in design and luxurious finish and materials that takes us into the future, combining the classic elements of the past with the imagery and the technology of today.

That is absolutely horrible! A knife that beautiful, that took that much time and effort to make, stolen. Someone who has no respect for others nor for the craftsmanship of the knife now has it. Very frustrating. I feel for the maker and engraver.

Thank you, Tim. I agree and hope we can cover the knife world with this notice and somehow catch the one(s) that did this.

You should speak to the maker and have him prepare flyers with knife photo and submit those flyers to pawn shops and knife dealers in the town where the knife was stolen while at the Fed Ex depot. If he sent flyers to the police dept in that town, they may pass them out to the pawn shops and known knife dealers.
