Bill Ruple Lanny's Clip, Linen Micarta Scales (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 mustard colored linen micarta scales with an inlaid 416 stainless Federal shield on the presentation side. The micarta scales have the appearance of old Westinghouse micarta that has yellowed and developed a patina from age. The bolster is 416 stainless steel, and the liners are integral. The pins and lined lanyard hole 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, with a firm and smooth pull. The knife was previously owned, and in excellent condition. Some barely visible micro scratches on the bolster from handling/storage. Great walk-and-talk from the master! Comes in a padded case.
Condition: Previously owned. Excellent.
