The Lochsa

The Lochsa folder is made from a solid piece of titanium.  The integral design has smooth flowing lines a contoured handle and it makes an impressive sounding “thwack” when you open it, it has the ergonomics and feel of a solid, working folder.  The Lochsa has developed a cult following and they are as rare as hen’s teeth.

This Lochsa has a blade of S90V, high polish finish, 14k thumb stud and the pivot has a Carbon Fiber overlay.

Ruffin Johnson, El Lobo Solo

Here is a very cool piece I acquired, it is from a knifemaker who is no longer with us, El Lobo Solo was the mark of Ruffin Johnson, world famous Texas knife maker and Texas Knifemaker Hall of Fame member, who passed in 2011.  Not what I usually fancy however this piece just kinda spoke to me.  The handle is Maple Burl and there is a sterling silver Wolf's Head on the butt of the knife.  Very cool!
