    Review lionSTEEL Gitano GT01 UL

    The lock mecanism is known as Cran Forcé. And it's like halfway between a regular slipjoint and a lockback. The designer (Gudy) likes to joke that he doesn't make knives for p***ies. So you know the large amount of force needed in 100% intentional. It's not entirely to my personal taste. But...

    Nice, I'm currently in the process of building someone a wharncliffe. Personally for my own taste I'd got with less weight. But the customer wants a heavier knife. So no tapering the tang on this one.

    Damascus Puukko

    Finished this one a little while back. Got my hands on a piece of Elforyn Supertusk artificial ivory to work with. Found some suitable pieces of steel to match it. The Supertusk is kind of weird to work with (a lot softer than I was expecting) but does turn out very nice once finished. The...
