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 the 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 Folding Dagger 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 flipper on this folder is extremely easy to use. Its small size means it doesn't get caught on things in the pocket.
The blade is hand ground damascus forged from carbon steels and will have excellent edge retention. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge and is sharpening on one side.
Marble carbon fiber handle scales are set on hand fileworked titanium liners. Thin black G10 overlays add a nice contrast. The titanium backspacer is domed and satin finished. Corrie's maker mark engraved on the inside of the backbar. The handle is very comfortable and fills your hand nicely.
Excellent work throughout!
