Are you in the market for a high quality, handmade full custom folding knife at an affordable price?
Well, if that is the case the Caprivi from Dennis Kappetijn Knives might just be the knife you are looking for. This little folder has been beautifully hand made and comes with its own handmade fitted pouch. As seen in the pictures, the blade spine and the liners feature file patterns, giving the knife true character. The knife has a drop point blade, which ideal for any outdoor task, and also for more specific hunting tasks, like skinning etc. The 440C high carbon blade has been hardened to 59 HRC, which makes it more practical as it keeps its edge reasonably well, but what is more important, is that it can be touched up and sharpened with ease.
