Description: Franck Souville is a knifemaker and blacksmith from Montgesoye, France. He produces forged fixed blades as well as slipjoints and friction folders both in modern and classic styles. This Bad Guy model is a perfect example of a modern twist on a classic slip joint style folder.
The broad clip point blade is flat ground from Souville's own damascus. By forging from carbon steels, he ensures a particularly keen, long lasting edge. The twist pattern damascus immediately grabs attention.
The blade can be opened with two hands using the oversized nail nick. The action is smooth and the blade snaps firmly into place. It is perfectly centered. There is no doubt this slip joint will be up to heavier duty tasks than most other slip joints.
The handle is made from black G10. It is hand textured for a secure, comfortable grip. The left scale is inlaid with Souville's skull icon. Red G-10 liners provide an excellent contrast to the black scales. A leather lanyard and damascus bead are included with the knife.
Excellent work throughout from a maker rarely seen in the US!
