Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom Barlow slip joint is a fantastic utility folder. The spear point blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed and implemented.
Willem was accepted as a member of the Knifemakersí Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) in May of 2007. His attention to detail is clearly evident in his knives.
The 2.9 inch blade is made from premium CPM154 stainless steel hardened to 59HRC with a satin finish. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The blade is well centered with a firm half stop -- easily opened with the right handed thumb nick.
The handle is made from natural canvas Micarta. The left scale is inlaid with a stainless steel shield.
Exceptional work throughout!
