Description: Swedish knifemaker Anders Hogstrom is well known for his exceptional fusion designs -- combining styles from his native country with those of Japan. The results are amazing. The last couple years, he has also been making folding knives. Recently, he was honored to have Boker collaborate with him to make the KingPin. This custom BronzeBack Friction Folder is Anders' custom work at its best!
The blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel stainless damascus. The Thor pattern damascus is beautifully displayed on the broad blade. The blade has smooth, consistent action and can either be opened using the piercing on the blade or the extended tang. This mechanism is borrowed from the traditional Japanese tradesman's folder, the higonokami. Like the higonokami, the extended tang is used to open the blade, but it also acts as a lock to avoid the blade accidentally closing when in use.
The handle is formed from textured titanium. Bronze accents and a bronze backbar bring warmth to the knife. The backbar extends from the back and creates a lanyard hole. The handle is completed with a textured titanium pocket clip mounted for tip-down carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
