Description: Journeyman Smith Bruce Barnett is a Western Australian knifemaker living in the hills of Perth. Bruce is one of the fine Australian makers who is drawing the attention of the knifemaking world to the wealth of knifemaking talent in his country. Bruce's attention to detail and fine design aesthetic is clearly apparent in this elegant and high performing folder.
The classic slipjoint folder is given an elegant new lease on life in this knife by Bruce. The W's pattern damascus blade has a dramatic high contrast pattern - it looks great from a distance, yet reveals further intricacies upon closer examination. The blade is distal tapered for a detail-oriented point. A thumb ramp ensures a comfortable grip for effortless use. The blade is easily opened using a nail nick.
The handle scales are formed from premium stag which complements the knife, giving it a classic look and a comfortable feel. The scales are perfectly fit to brushed 416 stainless steel bolsters and set on matching liners. The backbar is formed from A2 stainless steel. Four hammer finished pins complete the handle, matching the texture of the stag well.
Exceptional work throughout!
