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 retired architect, 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 was made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The grinds reveal the dramatic damascus pattern, while the flats are mirror polished. It is wickedly sharp and incorporates a unique and fascinating grind. The action is silky smooth, thanks to the IKBS ball bearing system and the blade is perfectly centered. 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.
The handle scales are formed from domed black carbon fiber. Zircu-Ti bolsters provide an elegant contrast against the carbon fiber scales. Zircu-ti is created by laminating layers of 6AL-4V commercially pure titanium and zirconium. The heat colored pool and eye pattern is particularly dramatic. Blue anodized titanium liners are jewel polished on the interior. An anodized, pierced titanium pocket clip makes it easy to keep the knife close at hand. The black 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 stunning folder that really shows off John's skill as a knifemaker.
