Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom Tarpon EDC liner lock is a flipper design and a fantastic utility folder. The clip point blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed for the task at hand.
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 3-1/4 inch click point blade is made from N690 stainless steel hardened to 59 Hrc with a differential finish. The flats are mirror polished while the grinds are satin finished. N690 is created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The blade is well centered with silky-smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The domed handle combines red/black lightning strike carbon fiber with damascus hand forged from carbon steels. Copper wire is woven through the carbon fiber strands. Bronze anodized titanium liners surround a fileworked, anodized titanium backbar, keeping the knife light, fast, and strong. A discreet and ambidextrous flipper tab makes deploying the blade a breeze. Includes an anodized titanium pocket clip mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
