Description: Growing up in a house where everybody had creative hobbies, John has always enjoyed making things with his hands. A part time knifemaker and architect by profession, John Arnold finds both joy and satisfaction in designing and constructing well balanced, well proportioned and beautiful knives. The Knifemakers Guild of South Africa recognized John's skill and accepted him as a member in September 2006.
John designed this strong, reliable folder for everyday carry, yet it could easily be a cherished knife in any collection. The blade is satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. It is wickedly sharp! The action is silky smooth, thanks to the IKBS ball bearing system, and it is perfectly centered without the slightest wobble. The IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play. A front flipper assists in the ease of opening. The compact front flipper is easy to use and does not get caught on things while kept in the pocket.
The handle scales are literally 3D printed!! I believe this is the first knife to be made by ANYONE using a 3D printed handle. The black areas are printed. The yellow areas were filled in afterwards. The result is exceptionally dramatic and very cool! The angular, domed scales are set on anodized titanium liners, jewel polished on the interior. An black G10 pocket clip is mounted for tip up carry and makes it easy to keep the knife close at hand. The carbon fiber backbar is inlaid with MoonGlow II (luminescent polyester). This inlay glows in the dark, making the knife easy to find even under dark conditions. A very classy folder, for every day carry, or for that special occasion (did I mention that the 3D printed scales were awesome?!).
