Description

THEUNS PRINSLOO 

A Full time Knife Maker since 1997 and a Member of the South African Knifemakers Guild – Theuns crafts beautiful knives often using exotic and visually stunning materials. I am excited to be working with Theuns. 

Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Theuns Prinsloo     


Just Received ~ Direct from the Maker at the New York Custom Knife Show 2012    

This is a beautiful example of Theuns work, a Large Linerlock with exotic materials – he and I discussed at length the intricate details of this knife and I have strived to show some of them (others will no doubt be discovered by the new owner).

The knife has striking Crosscut Mammoth Bone handle scales cast in Stained resin and bonded onto SS Melamine.  The RH Thumbstud also has a Mammoth Ivory inlay. The Bolsters are Stabilized dyed Giraffe Shinbone with wonderful natural surface texture.  The blade is Alabama Forge High Carbon Damascus washed in Copper to give it a very distinctive appearance.  The action is extremely smooth and the lock up is perfect! 

The frame is Full Anodized Titanium, Fileworked on the rear, Theuns has also Anodized the Titanium Backspacer in several colors and hand sculpted some of his distinctive Rock Art Bushman and Animal figures.  

The detail on these figures is amazing and the pictorals tell a story of South Africa and often show the Animals that the materials came from (you can just see the Giraffe in the picture below, the Mammoth is hiding somewhere else).    

This is a knife I could photograph for hours and still not fully show all the custom features.

 

This is a large precision Gentleman’s folder with very interesting materials. 

       This knife comes with an exotic Nauga Hyde Faux Leather pouch sheath.  Also a Color Certificate of Authenticity which details all components is included. 

A beautiful package that I am very proud to offer!
