Buck Strider

Two knife companies/manufacturers with a reputation collabrating = Buck Strider. A couple of varieties have been released previous decade. Bringing Strider designs in reach of the common knife buyer, being much more affordable as “real” Striders.

And now, being discontinued since a long time, all wanted by collectors. This one never carried or used. With original box. A sturdy, full sized folding knive with ATS34 bladesteel. Of course heath treated by famous the Paul BOS.

Not really sure if I am willing to let this one go. This is a good example of some production knives I am attached to. Because of history or because of the “soul”. Hard to explain.

Be aware, a lot of clones are circulating, all made in the far east. Be sure, if you can buy one, that your source is trustworthy.

André Thorburn one off custom

From South Africa, André Thorburn is in business for a long time now and generally recognised for his craftmanship and nice designs.
Two years ago I got the chance to get me a one off made by him. A button lock from the early 2000’s. The previous owner told me that André had told him never willing to make another because of the work involved.

In fact it is not a button lock. It is more a liner lock with a button to move the liner outwards to unlock it. The knife is a kind of Gentleman’ish folder with a damascus blade, aluminum bolster and very nice polished wooden scales. Fit & finish is what you can expect from a knifemaker with the reputation and stature André is known for, Opening is done with the thumb studs and closing with the button. Action is very smooth. Below a video I made 2 years ago when I got this piece. Don’t pay attention to my English; I know it isn’t good.
