Des Horn Folder, G-10 Handle, Plain.
Knifemakers practice their craft on every continent and
in every country on the planet. In Cape Town, South Africa there is Des
Horn. A career dentist, Des gained international acclaim as a knifemaker
in the 1960s. His debut collaboration intertwines elements of both a
Spear-Point and Wharncliffe blade shape, tapering to a super-fine,
flat-ground tip. Corrugated furrows machined onto the CPM-S30V blade
artistically sweep from the blade to the adjoining black Micarta handle.
The handle tapers in a mirrored profile to the blade to create a sleek,
spike-like profile and it has a Michael Walker Liner Lock and adjustable
pivot and scale screws.
