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.
The hand rubbed, satin finished blade is formed from premium ELMAX stainless steel, created by Bohler in Austria. At 60-61 Hrc, ELMAX provides the extreme edge retention, high strength, and toughness a hard-use knife demands. High wear resistance in a steel usually means low corrosion resistance, but not with ELMAX. With this advanced steel, you get both properties, which makes it an excellent steel for daily carry folders. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. The spine is nicely hand fileworked.
The blade is easily opened with one hand using the flipper tab. It uses a caged CERAMIC bearing pivot system that creates exceptional action with no blade play. Disengage the locking liner and the blade drops shut effortlessly. The blade is perfectly centered.
Carbon fiber scales are contoured to provide an excellent grip. Titanium liners surround a fileworked black G-10 back spacer which keeps the knife light and fast. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. This elegant folder will make a perfect gent's EDC.
Excellent work throughout!
