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 40 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.
The compound ground blade is 1095 carbon steel with an antiqued finish. 1095 carbon steel has excellent toughness and chip resistance making it an excellent choice for hard use knives. The blade features a compound grind with a recurve moving into a tanto tip. The tip is reinforced for extra penetration and resistance to breakage. The spine is fileworked for excellent thumb purchase.
Marble carbon fiber handle scales are set on hand fileworked titanium liners. The liners surround a bead blasted backbar. The inside of the backbar is anodized blue and engraved with Corrie's touchmark.
Excellent work throughout!
