Description: Corrie Schoemann's knives are some of the most spectacular coming out of South Africa. His designs are original and the implementation superb - truly work of an impeccable standard. This knife has been in a private collection since it was made in 2010. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. It does not appear to have been used to cut or carried.
Corrie's N'Able has a futuristic appearance with broad geometric lines. The modified tanto style blade has been hollow ground with dramatic grind lines. It is formed from linear pattern damascus by renowned South African bladesmith Bertie Rietveld, which matches the tactical style of the design well. Bertie is famous for his mastery of this pattern and the effect is similar to delicate pinstriping. The bronze bolsters are textured and antiqued and have geometric details that complement the blade perfectly.
Handle scales are formed from shimmering sections of white lip mother-of-pearl. The titanium backbar has been fileworked and inlaid with a faceted ruby matching the thumb stud. Decorative metal piercing completes the handle. Silky-smooth action!
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
