Description: Dirk Loots is a South African born knifemaker currently living and working in Cumming, Georgia. His knife-making journey began in 2011 after taking a knifemaking course that taught him the possibilities of knives as an art form. By 2016, Dirk had become quite accomplished and entered the high-end “functional-art” market where he immediately garnered the attention and respect of some of the finest knife makers in the world. Today, Dirk Loots' knives are becoming highly sought after as the creativity, precision, and execution of his work is absolutely exemplary. Outstanding material selection and flawless execution are hallmarks of a Dirk Loots Knife. Dirk’s work sets a high bar, and once in hand, you will respect each piece as a true masterpiece.
This dramatic Scalpel is formed from damascus forged by Bertie Rietveld. Bertie is renowned for his precision work in the forge and this ladder pattern, which is forged without introducing any distortion, shows off his skill at its best. Though both the blade and bolsters are formed from matching Rietveld damascus, the hollow ground blade and tang have been heat blued, whereas the bolsters are etched.
Mammoth ivory scales are set on thin titanium liners. The ancient bark ivory combines cream and caramel tones. It is set is place with torx screws.
Exceptional work throughout!
