Official Empress of Desire Collector Pocket Knife Folder issued by the Franklin Mint.
Knightstone Collections were created in the late 1990's by the Franklin Mint which was looking to capture a new audience for collecting. This Fantasy Knife Collection was designed by renowned fantasy artist Boris Vallejo. The collectibles marketed under these collections were a little racy compared to the typical collectibles that the Franklin Mint created and sold. In fact, the Franklin Mint, in an attempt to not offend the normal Franklin Mint collectors, originally used a mail address that was different than the normal Franklin Mint mail order. The address used for ordering the Knightstone Collections was actually a small warehouse on the grounds at the Franklin Mint headquarters located in Media Pa. The Pocket knives sold under Knightstone collections still carried all the high quality and attention to detail of the Franklin Mint knives.
She is the Empress of Desire and even the dragon's fiery breath is no match for her burning passion.
