South African knifemaker, Corrie Schoeman has been making knives for over 30 years.  He started while attending college.  His first knife was a big Bowie, fashioned from a car spring and a piece of stag from the local zoo.  Although he earned two university degrees, he continued to make knives on a part-time basis.  Knifemaking became such a passion that he left his profession and started full-time as a knifemaking artist.  He has been a member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 1985.  Today he only makes folders and autos.  He prefers to use the best exotic materials available, such as mammoth ivory, pearl and Damascus.  All his folders have file-worked liners and backspacers, and each folder has a jewel inlaid somewhere on the on the knife as well as in the thumbstud.

This spring-assisted liner-lock folding knife features a multi-ground, drop-point stainless Damascus blade with file-work on the spine, and a Mokume bolster.  I was told that the handle material is two (2) Kudu Horn scales.  There are six (6) small metal beads inlaid into the scales on both sides.  The liners are file-worked, bronze anodized titanium.  The pins are stainless and the backspacer has file-work.  There is a Ruby inlay at the front of the backspacer.  The right-handed thumbstud also has a Ruby inlay.  To the best of my knowledge, the knife has never used, carried or sharpened.  There are some very faint minor handling marks on the scales, which could be buffed out.  Otherwise, it is in excellent condition.  The blade sits centered between the liners when closed.  The blade fires fast and smooth and locks up tight when opened.  It did not come to me with a case, but I will make sure it includes some kind of sleeve or pouch for storage/carry.

Condition:  Previously owned.  Excellent.
