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 lighter pull.
The blade is hand forged by Tom from three layers of 1095 carbon steel, copper, and nickel. The high contrast of the copper in the Cu-mai blade is extremely engaging. The blade is antiqued to provide limited rust resistance. The tanto blade features a compound grind. Because the blade is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade from rust and oxidation.
Black paper Micarta handle scales are set on copper liners using copper pins and a copper pivot. The liners surround an antiqued carbon steel backbar. Tom's maker mark is engraved on the inside of the backbar. The contoured handle feels great in the hand.
Excellent work throughout!
