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.
This D'ter is an exceptional folder. Lightning strike carbon fiber scales have copper stands woven through the woven carbon. Lightning strike carbon fiber was developed by the military for use in fighter jets. An underlay formed from black G-10 is set on hand fileworked titanium liners. The titanium backbar is inlaid with a faceted ruby and a citrine.
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 modified wharncliffe blade is hollow ground and sharpened to a razor sharp edge. It has silky smooth action. It is easily opened using the front flipper mechanism. The blade runs on ball bearings, ensuring consistent, smooth performance across time.
This is a tremendous folder that will perform exceptionally well, but is sure to feel comfortable in most any collection.
