Description: Back in 1997 Steve Skiff made a hatchet for his son in his metal fabrication shop. This led to making a few hunting knives for family and friends. Before he knew it, Steve was attending knife shows and attempting to learn everything he could about the craft of making knives. These days Steve is known for making high end folding knives with a high attention to detail and an incredible fit and finish rarely seen elsewhere. He is a voting member of the American Knifemakers Guild and belongs to the Northeast Cutlery Collectors Association (NCCA).
This custom Culprit #23 from Skiff shows his incredible machining skills and broad understanding of good knife design. The blade is made from CTS-XHP stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. This US-made steel is a new air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. It rotates open on caged ceramic bearings and has incredibly smooth action!
The handle is constructed from titanium that is machined in a chevron pattern for extra grip. A White Timascus pivot ring adds extra flash into this design. The scales surround a raised ridge titanium backbar that has been anodized a deep blue tone. The screw hardware is anodized blue to match the backbar. The White Timascus pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Absolutely exceptional fit and finish throughout!
