Jim Dunlap Shadow Pattern Gentleman's folders

Jim is is a relatively new custom knife maker specializing in traditional style folders.  Jerry McClure, a long time award winning knifemaker, is a mentor to Jim and the tutelage shows as Jim's fit and finish is very good, back springs are flush in all three (open/closed/halfstop) positions on his knives and is file work is good. I love these little Gentleman's Folders that Jim makes and have sold close to 50 of them over the past couple of years.  Blades are all hand rubbed and satin finished.

People pick them up and marvel at how good the knife is for such a reasonable price. I expect to see his knives become more popular as they offer great value for the price.  This is a knife maker to watch.  If interested go to
