Description: Corrie Schoeman’s knives are world renowned for their beautiful, unique designs. His artistry and design sense are immediately identifiable. Corrie started making knives about 30 years while attending school. His first knife was a big Bowie made from a car spring and he obtained a piece of stag from his local zoo for the handle. Fellow students were enthralled and he began taking orders to make more. Even after earning two university degrees, he continued to make knives part-time, but it became such a passion that he is now a full-time knifemaker. He has been a member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 1985 and one of the three members of the prospective member evaluation committee. Today he makes folders and automatics using the best exotic materials. His folders have fileworked liners and backstraps, with attention paid to every detail.
The upswept damascus blade shows off Corrie's skill at the grinder -- with an elegant hollow grind that shows off clean, crisp grind lines. The blade is easily opened using the flipper mechanism. The flipper is inlaid with a faceted ruby. The blade runs on caged bearings, ensuring smooth, consistent action with a perfectly centered blade.
Marble carbon fiber scales rest on titanium, keeping this knife light and fast. Black G-10 underlays separate the titanium liners from the recessed marble carbon fiber scales. Both the liners and back strap are formed from titanium and are meticulously hand fileworked. The backbar is inlaid with a section of abalone.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
