Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom Dino slip joint is a fantastic utility folder. The sheepsfoot blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed and implemented. Willem was accepted as a member of the Knifemakers’ Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) in May of 2007. His attention to detail is clearly evident in his knives. His fit and finish rivals that of the best makers found anywhere.
The blade is perfectly centered with a firm half stop -- easily opened with the right handed thumb nick.
The 2.8 inch blade is made from premium RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL 34 is a powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is made from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The handle is made from Thunderstorm Kevlar. Brass wires are woven through the Kevlar strands. The right scale features a meticulously inlaid escutcheon made from crosscut Micarta. Matching crosscut Micarta bolsters are perfectly fit to the Thunderstorm Kevlar scales. Red and black spacers finish the knife.
Exceptional work throughout!
