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 o f 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 2-3/4 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. It is well centered with a firm half stop -- easily opened with the right handed thumb nick.
Handle scales are made from marble carbon fiber secured with stainless steel pins. A whitelip mother of pearl escutcheon is beautifully inlaid into the carbon fiber. Stainless steel liners are jewel polished on the interior.
Exceptional work throughout!
