Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom Back Pocket slip joint is a fantastic utility folder. The clip point blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed and implemented. This classic design gets its name from its function -- it is a perfect size to fit in the back pocket next to your wallet.
Willem was accepted as a member of the Knifemakers’ Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) in May of 2007. His attention to detail is clearly evident in his knives.
The 3.3 inch clip point blade is made from premium CPM-154 stainless steel hardened to 61HRC with a satin finish. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. It is well centered with a firm half stop -- easily opened with the right handed thumb nick.
The handle is made from black paper Micarta set on red fiber spacers. The Micarta is perfectly jigged for a secure, comfortable grip. It creates a knife with a terrific old school, heirloom feel. The left scale features a 303 stainless steel shield.
Exceptional work throughout!
