4″ scagel style slipjoint in 440c stainless with stainless bolsters and boxelder burl!


here is my take on a great 4″ closed scagel style slipjoint from Jerry Van Eizenga’s book on scagel style folders. this one features 440c stainless blade, with stainless liners and front and rear bolsters and some very nice boxelder burl and is about perfect in the side pocket of cargo shorts or a jeans back pocket or jacket pocket and is ground nice and thin, the way a smaller every day using pocketknife should be!
