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. 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 blade is formed from premium M390 powdered stainless steel for the extreme edge retention, high strength, and the toughness that a hard-use knife demands. Because of its uniform microstructure and stainless properties, M390 is often used in surgical cutting instruments and other applications that require a high finish. The blade is wickedly sharp and is satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats.
Titanium liners are used for strength, while keeping the knife light and fast. They are anodized to a bronze tone. The carbon fiber back spacer extends beyond the end of the body and has a lanyard hole. Handle scales are formed from OD green G10 with black G10 bolsters. The pierced, anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry. All pieces fit together with amazing precision.
