Sharp combo.

Tell me more about the knife. My Dad has the same pocket knife he had had since the 1960s. He is a master woodworker. Would love to have him something done with exotic woods.

Traditional Barlow pattern by a relatively recent maker named Nick Timpson. I believe his books are closed and I’ve only seen him use micarta, no wood. There are number of makers that produce slipjoints in wood. Depending on the maker, plan on spending at least $400. You might want to check out Kabisch knives. He’s a newer maker so prices are at the lower end. Uses a lot of materials including figured wood.
