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 Souville's own san mai damascus. It was forged from carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting cutting edge. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The blade can be easily opened using the oversized nail nick. There is no doubt this slip joint will be up to heavier duty tasks than most other slip joints.
The handle is made from carbon fiber secured using pins. The left scale is inlaid with Souville's skull icon. An oxidized and antiqued finish backbar blends in nicely with the jet black carbon fiber scales. A leather lanyard and damascus bead are included with the knife.
Excellent work throughout from a maker rarely seen in the US!
