Description: Franck Souville is a knifemaker and blacksmith from Montgesoye, France. He produces forged fixed blades as well as slipjoints and friction folders - both in modern and classic styles. This Bad Guy model is a perfect example of a modern twist on a classic slip joint style folder.
The broad clip point blade is flat ground from premium 80CrV2 carbon steel. 80CrV2 provides tremendous strength and resilience while remaining very easy to sharpen. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation. A stonewash finish will help hide any scuffs and scratches from use.
The blade can be opened using the oversized nail nick. The action is smooth and the blade snaps firmly into place. It is well centered. There is no doubt this slip joint will be up to heavier duty tasks than most other slip joints.
Jigged handle scales are made from green G10 with tan G10 inlays on both sides. The left scale is inlaid with Souville's skull icon. A leather lanyard and textured bead are included with the knife.
Excellent work throughout from a maker rarely seen in the US!
