Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom Nomad Jr. EDC liner lock is a flipper design and a fantastic utility folder. The new Nomad Jr. Model brings all the strength of the Nomad Flipper into a small, more pocket friendly design. The drop point blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed for the task at hand.
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 is on par with the best makers out there!
The 2.8 inch drop point blade is made from CTS-XHP stainless steel hardened to 61 HRC. This US-made steel is a new air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy. The grinds are satin finished while the flats are mirror polished, showing off the crisp, clean grinds. The blade is hand hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The handle combines blue/silver carbon fiber with a zirconium bolster. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scratching. The handle nicely domed for a comfortable grip. Liners are anodized blue. Jimping on the black titanium backbar provides traction when pulling the knife from the pocket. The black titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
