Description: South African knifemaker, Jan Wahl, is a maker to watch. He became a full time knife maker in 2009 and joined the South African Knife Makers Guild in 2012. Jan has excellent attention to detail. For the last couple years, he has been making folders as well as fixed blades and the results have been incredible. This folder is built to be used, but will feel at home in any collection.
The blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, 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 spine is hand fileworked to create a secure thumb purchase. A large choil allows you to choke up for more delicate tasks.
The blade is easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses a caged bearing pivot system that creates exceptional action with no blade play. Disengage the locking liner and the blade drops shut effortlessly.
The handle scales are made from black G10. The scales contrast elegantly against the bronze-red anodized titanium liners. A black G10 backbar keeps the knife light yet strong. The matching anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
