Gudy Van Poppel folders

2 very nice folders made by dutch knifemaker Gudy Van Poppel. I have a 3rd one of the same model as well, but didn't take any pictures yet.

Gudy is one of my "top" favorite knife makers, and he's also a very nice guy, and I'm proud to call him "friend".

First one has a mammoth ivory handle, damascus steel blade & bolsters, and berillium liners. It is a button-activated linerlock (pressing the button unlocks the liner).

 The second one has the same specifications, but desert ironwood handles.

W. D. Pease "Colorado" folder

This is a very nice folder, made by W.D. Pease, in my eyes one of the BEST folder makers in the world. Materials are stag & damascus for the handle, 154CM steel for the blade.

Kaj Embretsen "Bartender"

Here's a picture of one of my favorite folders. Made by Kaj Embretsen, a Swedish knifemaker.

All blades, the corkscrew and the bolsters are made from damascus steel forged by Kaj. Handle slabs are mammoth ivory, and the pins are gold
