See details in BUSHCRAFT.

Brand new from Maker. £275 inc. UK p&p.

TIM BERNARD. FRANCE.

One of France's most respected Makers (his knife graces the cover of the Coutellia programme) and a long time acquaintance, this Liner-lock knife immediately caught my eye on Tim's table. The handle is Lace Sheoak wood with a 14c28N mirror polished blade and some very attractive filework on the spine. Blade: 90mm. Closed: 120mm. Tim's folders are some of the most ergonomic I have held.

Brand new from Maker. £345 inc. UK p&p.

LOURENS PRINSLOO. S/AFRICA.

A nice surprise while visiting Coutellia was to come across the table of South African Maker, Lourens Prinsloo. A member of the highly regarded Knifemakers Guild of South Africa and a knife maker since 1996, the high quality of his work is obvious. This superb folder features Lourens unique button closure of the liner-lock mechanism. The steel is 12c27 with a 'Fat Carbon Camo' handle and Titanium liners. Blade: 2-1/4 inches. Closed: 3-1/2 inches. Complete with zip pouch.

Brand new from Maker. £345 inc. UK p&p.

BUCK KNIVES. USA. "DUKE 500".

A classic Buck folder that has now been discontinued. From my research this Duke appears to have been made from about 1979-1981 and has s/steel bolsters with what appears to be Rosewood (?) scales. A very collectable knife, complete with its original belt sheath. Closed: 4-1/4 inches. In very good condition, with light scratches on the bolsters but original factory edge. 

Very good condition. New price: £125 inc. UK p&p

COLD STEEL. USA. "VOYAGER SERIES".

This is a lovely (very) lightweight mid-lock folder from around 2001, when Cold Steel knives were still made in Japan. With a 50/50 plain & serrated blade of AUS 8A - known for it's sharpness - this is a folder that would be a welcome addition to a collection or as a working knife. Medium size: 3 inch blade. Closed: 4inch.

Mint, unused condition. New price: £55 inc. UK p&p.

JIM DUNLAP. USA. "SHADOW TRAPPER".

A super knife from one of my favourite slipjoint makers. While maybe not as 'high-profile' as some of the "Names", Jim's work is second to none. The is a lovely EDC with a modern twist, featuring a classic 'Clip Point' blade but handled in black/blue Carbon Fibre (no liners). Super light in the pocket but ready to be put to use when needed. Blade: 2-3/4 inches. Closed: 3-3/8 inches. Superb 'walk & talk' - whoever buys this will not be disappointed. Mint, unused condition. £295 inc. UK p&p.

OPINAL. FRANCE. "N0.12 - Carbon".

The largest version of this classic French folder (who hasn't owned one at some point in their life!). Blade: 12cm. Closed: 16cm.

Excellent, near mint condition. £18 inc. UK p&p.

ABRAM BROOKSBANK. SHEFFIELD. "Pre 1890 SENATOR".

Details added asap

Superb condition. £95 inc. UK p&p.

UNKNOWN MAKER. SHEFFIELD. "LARGE STAG CLIP POINT".

A stunning knife very much in the manner of the late, great Stan Shaw although, unfortunately, there is nothing to denote he made this. The Mark side is stamped with "Sheffield England X" and the Pile side simply has 'Stainless Steel' stamped on it. With very nice quality Sambar stag scales and a "Humpback" (Sneck ?) Lock, this lovely knife locks up nice and tight with no 'wobble'. Blade: 4-1/4 inches. Closed: 5 inches.

Mint, unused condition. £225 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD FARID MEHR. "K2-S SLIP JOINT".

A brand new design from this highly regarded maker, who specialises in titanium folders. Introduced at the Sharp Show, this is a limited edition and will no doubt quickly sell out. The workmanship is 1st class (as Farid is known for) and the design allows the buyer to carry a full size knife with an legal non-locking blade, secured by a ceramic detent. The blade is made from M2 SSS steel @ 66 Rc., with a titanium frame and pocket clip. Blade: 2 inches. Closed: 5 inches.

Brand new from Maker.

KERSHAW KNIVES. USA. "Ltd.Ed. SCRIMSHAW - GERMAN SHEPHERD"

Made in 1993, this locking folder is from a Limited Special Edition with this particular knife featuring a German Shepherd in a full colour scrimshaw. The scrimshaw ( on one side only) is done by hand on white bone and is signed by the actual artist. Complete with Certificate and presented in a wooden display box ( which shows a few very minor 'handling' marks - as you would expect on a 30 year old box ).

Folder closed: 4 inches. Blade: 2-3/4 inches.  Brass bolster.

This would make a great gift for a outdoor person with an Alsatian !

Mint, unused condition. £125 inc. UK p&p.

WILLIAM HENRY KNIVES. USA. "T10BT - LANCET".

please email for more details. Discontinued knife from WH.

Mint, unused condition. £325 inc. UK p&p

REMINGTON. USA. "R1613 - FISHERMEN'S KNIFE"

For all lovers of vintage (antique?) slipjoints, this is from one of the great names of yesterday year. Remington knives were prized for their highest quality and edgeholding and favoured by many outdoorsmen of that time. Although still manufactured (now owned by Buck Knives) this knife hails from the 'Golden Age' of between the wars and would make lovely addition to a collection. Closed: 5 inches.

Genuine 1924-1933 model. Good cond. £75 inc. UK p&p.

IXL G. WOSTENHOLM & SONS. "2-Blade PENKNIFE".

A 'drop dead gorgeous' little IXL folder with its own original presentation box (unfortunately the elastic retaining loop has perished but could be easily replaced). This is from my own collection and I would guess dates from the 1950's-1960's. The jigged bone is extremely well done and with a lovely rich brown colour. Both the Clip and Pen blades have the IXL stamp on the tangs and a very  nice 'walk & talk' with both blades snapping open with authority. This is a very well made knife. Because of the small size - and the presentation box - I would class this as a "Gentleman's pocket knife". Closed:2-7/8 inches. Clip:2inches. Pen:1-3/8inches. Mint, unused condition. NEW PRICE: £150 inc. UK p&p

GREG LIGHTFOOT. CANADA. "MAX-VELOCITY Liner lock".

A chance to acquire a knife from one of the 'founding members' of the Tactical Folder genre. Superb workmanship and as mint as the day it left Greg's workshop. All the 'boxes ticked' with double thumb stud, bead blasted bolsters and liners, G10 handle and titanium pocket clip. Stainless steel (possibly BG42) 3.25" blade and closed length of 4.25". Feels very light in the hand with a rock solid lock-up.

Mint cond. with zip case. NEW PRICE: £430 inc. UK p&p

POCKET KNIVES by Bernard Levine. 2002.

ANDRE THORBURN. S. AFRICA. "Model L-3".

PLEASE EMAIL FOR DETAILS. £325 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD W.R.CASE & Sons. USA. " SLIMLINE TRAPPER -TONY BOSE '1999 YEAR KNIFE' ".

Not to be confused with the Tony Bose designs range of knives by Case, this is, in fact, the first year of the yearly Case/Bose Collaborations - which Tony personally oversees himself.

Having met Tony -arguably the World's best maker of Slipjoints - at the Blade Show, he was subsequently invited back to the Case factory, which resulted in Case then producing in 1999 the best knives ever to come out of that factory ! ( I know because I have owned Case Folders from "The Golden Age" and this surpasses them by far ! ). These folders are limited in number simply because of the high level of hand 'f&f' by a small group of the very best of Case employees, who were taught and supervised by Tony. The venture was such an outstanding success, that Case have gone on to produce a different pattern each year, again highly supervised by Tony - who actually makes the Prototype for Case to set up the tooling for production. This first model is still one of my favourite patterns of all the year knives and is of better quality than some Custom work I have seen over the years.

Mint, unused condition.

SOLD AL MAR. USA. "S.E.R.E.".

This is a particularly nice example of this vintage knife from Al Mar - when Al Mar was still alive and running the Company. Designed in the 1980's with Col. Nick Rowe, who used his experience as an escaped POW in Vietnam, to design a knife that would fufil the needs of  the S.E.R.E.

(Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) School he formed for the US Army Special Forces. This folder design is the result - built like a "tank" not to let you down.

Now a great Collector piece, it's still more than capable as a user. This particular knife is the largest of the sizes that Al Mar offered and has the original belt sheath, complete with sharpening stone.

Size:6 inches closed ! Excellent cond. 

JIM DUNLAP USA

Jim Dunlap.  Semi-Skinner model. At the request of one of my customers for a non-locking Semi-Skinner folder, I approached Jim with the idea and he came up with the goods! ( I was so taken with the concept that I ordered four ). Jim has made these in a very practical size - not too small or too big. Closed length 4 1/8" with a 3 1/4" blade ( 3" cutting edge ). I can see these being very useful for either  Camping or Hunting as the thin blade of premium CPM154 stainless steel cuts like a demon !!  Jim has incorporated "half-stops" in the opening/closing action as a safety feature. I am very pleased how these have turned out. Great using knife!  New from maker.
