    I was fortunate this morning to spend an hour hanging out in Lyle Brunkhorst's shop and chatting with him. To put the icing on the cake I was able to handle several of his knives, including the one pictured! Smooth, comfortable, eyecatching. Most of what you want in a knife. According to Lyle it also is a workhorse and he won't put out a knife that couldn't be used here in Washington or in his beloved Montana.

    Very nice! I like the way the whole design just seems to flow.

    While I was turning it over in my hand and asking about the "terraced" texture he showed me the small ball mill he used to mill the 3-D surface. Pretty nifty.

    Another great feature was the use of cage bearings for the pivot. He'd used the loose ball bearing IKBS at first and switched and says he likes the results better. It sure handled like a dream.

    Looks sharp,
    What kind of lock does it have ?

    He's invented his own.

    Looks like a fork that prevents upward or downward movement.

    It looks like a Spyderco Compression Lock with a notch in the blade instead of the lock bar wedging between a stop pin and a flat on the blade.
