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 SuperBad model is a Tashi Bharucha design which in turn was based on Franck's Bad Guy slip joint folder. This massive slip joint folder is definitely SuperBad!!
The broad clip point blade is flat ground from Souville's own damascus. It was forged from carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting cutting edge. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
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 presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood (Olneya tesota). The natural wood has a nice mix of warm and dark tones. Satin finished stainless steel bolsters bring weight toward the front of the knife. A leather lanyard andtextured beads are included with the knife.
Excellent work throughout from a maker rarely seen in the US!
