CAUTION! You are about to enter the gun porn zone! So please, no cracks about how many GLOCKs you could buy instead of one of Cabot Guns’ exquisite Damascus Ladder Deluxe 1911s. When it comes to price, if you have to ask you can’t afford it. It’s as simple as that . . .
Press release: Back in 2013, Cabot introduced a gun we simply called “The Damascus” and it turned heads. Well, we’ve continued to push the envelope and if you appreciate quality 1911’s we have something special again . . .
The Cabot Gun’s Damascus Ladder Deluxe is the perfect intertwining of grit and sensuality – inspiring widened eyes, a quickened heart and immediate carnal reaction of raw desire. It’s confidence embodied in art, a culmination of collaborative effort between tradition and the cutting-edge.
Unique to the supremely elegant Damascus steel slide is a sculptural texture which is as much an aesthetic addition as it is a deliberate consideration of combining form and function. Cabot has developed a super-etching technique, which when applied to the Damascus Ladder Deluxe’s slide turns the entire top-half of the pistol into a tactile surface.
A sign of wealth since biblical times, Damascus steel was used to create the weapons of Kings and Chieftains. Valued for it’s beauty and strength, Damascus steel was not only an indication of power by it’s holder but was also considered to contain mythical properties. It is with this inspiration we have crafted this 1911.
The grips for the special edition offering of this model are also a work of art. Pattern welded Damascus, commissioned from Master Blacksmith Jason Morrissey and crafted in-house each set of grips contains unique Damascus Art.
