Ray Cover Slip-Joint Canoe Folding Knife (SOLD)

This item is out of stock

Ray Cover is best known for his flawless design and execution of the slip-joint folding knife.  His fit and finish, no matter what he crafts, is perfect.  He is a master knifemaker who's work is highly regarded, and coveted by collectors.

This slip-joint canoe shaped folding knife is in excellent condition.  The bolsters show some minor wispy surface handling marks from storage.  It has never been used or sharpened.  It is from a collection, and has only been handled and admired.  The blade is made from 154CM stainless steel with a satin finish, and the front and rear bolsters are nickel silver.  I am not certain what wood type was used for the handle.  It is dark (perhaps Desert Ironwood or Cocobolo), with nice grain.  The knife features a half-stop, filework along the spine of the blade, and dovetailed bolsters.  The forward nail nick has a firm yet smooth pull, and the blade has that great "snap" that accompanies all of Ray's folders.  The blade lock-up is tight with no play, and it is aligned in the handle.

Condition:  Previously owned.  Excellent condition.
