Description: Corrie Schoeman’s knives are world renowned for their beautiful, unique designs. His artistry and design sense are immediately identifiable. Corrie started making knives about 30 years ago while attending school. His first knife was a big Bowie made from a car spring and he obtained a piece of stag from his local zoo for the handle. Fellow students were enthralled and he began taking orders to make more. Even after earning two university degrees, he continued to make knives part-time, but it became such a passion that he is now a full-time knifemaker. He has been a member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa since 1985 and one of three members of the prospective member evaluation committee. Today, he makes folders and automatics using the best exotic materials. His folders have fileworked liners and backstraps, with attention paid to every detail.
This D'Fuse Front Flipper is a tremendous example of Corrie's work. The action is silky smooth and consistent, running on caged bearings. The blade is perfectly centered. The inobtrusive front flipper on this folder is extremely easy to use.
The blade is hand ground damascus forged from carbon steels and will have excellent edge retention. It is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Black G10 is set on hand fileworked titanium liners and features stabilized bone overlays on both sides. The backbar is inlaid with a section of abalone, providing a flash of color.
Excellent work throughout!
