Description: Growing up in a house where everybody had creative hobbies, John has always enjoyed making things with his hands. A part time knifemaker and retired architect, John Arnold finds both joy and satisfaction in designing and constructing well balanced, well-proportioned and beautiful knives. The Knifemakers Guild of South Africa recognized John's skill and accepted him as a member in September 2006. This knife was made in the spring of 2011. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. By all appearances, John could have made it yesterday.
John designed this strong, reliable folder for everyday carry, yet it could easily be a cherished knife in any collection. The satin finished blade is wickedly sharp, incorporating a fascinating grind - John sculpted the swedge in such a way that when viewed point-first, the modified tanto tip forms an elongated diamond shape. The action is silky smooth, and the blade is perfectly centered without the slightest wobble.
Handle scales are formed from sleek, desert tan G10 - the pattern of the polished G10 complements the overall design nicely. The angular, sculpted scales are set on anodized titanium liners, jewel polished on the interior. A partial backbar extends into a sharply delineated lanyard hole. Ambidextrous thumb studs and satin finished screws complete the piece.
The knife is accompanied by a leather belt pouch for easy, secure carry.
Excellent work throughout!
