Outstanding Gianferarri Damascus blade. Each bolster is a single piece of stainless steel, with the external and internal portions stippled, colored by a chemical process and hardened with a low electical current. The center portion is buffed to a mirror polish. The buffalo horn scales are carved, beginning with a rough texture, then smooth, leading into the rear section with its five pins. Extensive filework including part of the blade spine, the liners and the backspring. The blade seats dead center in the trough and opens smoothly with a solid lockup. The ruby inlays in the thumbstud and backspring just add to the already superb workmanship by Corrie. Includes Certificate of Origin. Blade Steel: Ettore' Gianferarri Damascus

Schoeman, Corrie
I started making knives about 30 years ago while at University. My first knife was a big Bowie made from a car spring and I obtained a piece of stag from the local zoo for the handle. I still have and treasure that first knife. In my younger days I was very involved in martial arts yet could not buy Japanese weapons to train with, so I made my own, a short sword called a "sai". My fellow students were enthralled and I began taking orders to make more. Although having earned two university degrees, I continued to make knives part-time, but it became such a passion that I left my profession and am now a full-time knifemaking artist. I have been a member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 1985 and one of the three members of the prospective member evaluation committee. Today I only make folders and automatics, using the best exotic materials such as mammoth ivory, pearl, damascus and damasteel. All my folders have fileworked liners and backstraps, each folder has a jewel inlaid somewhere on the knife as well as in the thumbstud. My logo is "Folding Art", and that is what my knives are: pieces of folding art."
