Description: Bullock Brothers Knives are made by Tom Bullock by hand in the United Kingdom. Though he has only been making knives full time since April 2021, don't be fooled because his work is exceptional! Tom often brings the hand forged aesthetic to his knives, which is rare to see in slip joint folders. After seeing his knives in person, I was extremely pleased to be able to represent Tom's knives here in the United States. His fit and finish and attention to the smaller details is fantastic!
The blade is perfectly centered with a firm half stop -- easily opened with the right handed thumb nick. The blade has smooth, consistent action and a medium pull.
The blade is hand ground Yu Shoku san mai. V-Toku2 carbon steel is surrounded by alternating layers of stainless steel, brass and copper. This provides an ultra-high performing edge with rust resistance along the spine and upper portion of the blade. The layered mokume gane is extremely engaging! The flats of the blade are forge textured.
Handle scales are cocobolo set on stainless steel liners using brass pins. The contoured scales provide a comfortable grip. Cocobolo is a highly desirable wood used in custom knives, revered for its red and black tones and high durability. The spring is antiqued to nicely match the etched san mai core.
Excellent work throughout!
