Some time ago, Murat made a "Mamut Guppy". http://forum.weapons.be/showthread.php?t=11648&highlight=guppy After seeing & handling this folder, and after purchasing two ironwood handled folders from Murat, I decided to ask Murat to build me a similar folder. First I asked for a frame-lock, but Murat was not comfortable with it, and asked me if he could make a liner lock. No problem for me, the maker should make what he makes best! Now the folder is finished, and I'm really very happy with the result. Every bit as nice as I expected!

Amazing! I love that the torx are a color that goes with the handle and bolster. I have seen too many knives made that are great, but they have these shiny steel torx and they look completely out of place. This is beautiful.

Thanks for posting the pictures!kewlpics1

Definitely don't see enough of Murat Klein's work. I've admired his knives for a couple years now... Some day, some day...

That is a real beauty.

I've got 3 of them already, and probably one more next month!

Kind regards,

Thanks for showing the before materials shot and the after completed shot, they really make the skill part blatant for thickheads like me.
