    Hello Michael,
    The knife was available for shipment for several weeks but Raphael was anxious to ship it owing to Covid (insurance and delivery against signature not possible). Eventually, last week, I went to Raphael's workshop in Thiers and spent a very nice moment visiting his workshop and chatting with him.

    This exquisite mother of pearl handled front lock by French Maker GUILLAUME DUCASSE

    Aigrette-&-sheath-.jpg

    and the equally exquisite clipped back sheath made for the knife by CEDAR GROVE LEATHER a young woman on ETSY. It is of black, pebble grained, Italian vegetable tanned leather with the gray interior of goat leather. This is as fine a leather slip I have ever owned and is a perfect suit for the refined GD folder.

    Here's a great piece by J.D. Ware. I picked it up at his shop when I was studying Spanish in Mexico a few years ago. He does things old school and uses a lot of cool materials that he souces locally. Really nice guy and a very skilled maker.

    Nice! I love his stag.

    I would say a smooth medium pull. It's snappy without cracking fingernails
