Description: Bullock Brothers Knives are made by hand by Tom Bullock in the United Kingdom. He has been making knives full time since April 2021, and 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 as well as attention to the smaller details is fantastic!
This Hoikka Slipjoint was built to be an ideal daily carry. The hand ground blade is 12C27M stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden. This steel takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. It also maintains high toughness, high chip resistance, and good corrosion resistance -- it is a well rounded choice for a daily use knife. The blade features a meticulous hand rubbed satin finish.
The blade is nicely centered and has smooth, consistent action, and a light pull with a firm half stop.
The 304 stainless steel handle features a brushed finish with texturing on the chamfers. The scales surround a satin finished stainless steel back spring. The handle fills out the hand and is comfortable to hold, et small enough to disappear into a pocket for easy carry.
Excellent work throughout!
