Bill Ruple Lanny's Clip, Black Jigged Micarta Scales, Slip-Joint Folding Knife (SOLD)
Bill Ruple is a master at making slip joint folders. He has taught and inspired so many knifemakers on how to make folding knives, that it's almost impossible to list them.
You have to hold one of Bill's knives to truly appreciate the fit and finish, and his attention to detail. He has been making knives since 1988. The quality of his knives has been consistent throughout his career. No matter what show he attends, he always sells out - and quickly!
This Lanny's Clip slip-joint folder features a CPM-154 stainless steel blade, and hand-jigged black micarta scales with an inlaid 416 stainless steel, hand-checkered Federal shield on the presentation side. There are yellow spacers between the liners and scales. The bolster is 416 stainless steel, and is integral to the liners. The pins are also 416 stainless. The blade has a half-stop, locks up tight with no blade play, and the blade seating is perfectly centered. Nice long nail nick, as well as a long pill, affords a firm and smooth pull. Great walk-and-talk from the master! Comes in a Ruple padded case.
