Description: Corrie Schoeman creates some of the most dramatic knives coming out of South Africa. He has a unique and captivating sense of design that is only matched by the attention that he pays to every detail.

The blade is from made from high performing 1095 carbon steel. A traditional Japanese heat treatment method results in a soft, supportive spine with a keen, long lasting cutting edge. The undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon.

The blade runs on ball bearings, ensuring consistent performance across time. A citrine jewel has been inserted into both sides of the blade for an added touch of elegance.
