Description: Tinus Stone is a custom knifemaker from Mossel Bay on the Western Cape of South Africa. He mainly makes slipjoints and is known for his clean lines and great fit & finish.
The blade on this Companion Slipjoint Folder is hand ground N690 stainless steel. Bohler N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality to Tinus' work. Tinus' maker mark is on the left side of the blade.
Dyed and stabilized maple burl handle scales are set on stainless steel liners. Blue fiber liners nicely complement the scales and will help the wood adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The contoured handle is very comfortable in hand.
This folder is nicely timed with a firm half-stop. The action throughout is smooth and consistent.
The knife is accompanied by a leather slip pocket pouch for easy carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
