Bobby House Vintage Rag Micarta Zulu Spear, Slip-Joint Folding Knife
Bobby House is a relatively new, part-time slip-joint knifemaker from Pleasanton, TX. If the city in Texas doesn't ring a bell, it is where the master, Bill Ruple also lives. Bobby is a student of Bill's, or as I like to refer to the many who Bill has mentored, a "Ruple Pupil". Bobby is a member of the South Texas Slip-Joint Cartel. He has learned well, and is definitely "one to watch". His attention to detail and his fit-and-finish is that of a much more seasoned maker. This knife is Brand New and direct from Bobby's table at the 2021 Blade Show.
This slip-joint Zulu Spear folding knife features a CPM-154 stainless steel blade, 416 stainless steel bolster and pins, and 410 stainless steel liners that have been jeweled and relieved. The scales are two pieces of antique Rag Micarta, with great color and pattern. There's an inlaid Arrowhead shield made from ancient fossilized material. And there are also orange G-10 spacers between the scales and the liners. The knife features a half-stop, locks up tight with no blade play, and the blade seating is perfectly centered. Nice large nail nick, with a firm, smooth pull. Great walk-and-talk from the student of the master! Comes in a "B. House Customs" padded, zippered case.
