Pepe Jalomo Custom Wharncliffe Trapper Zirconium CPM154 Slip Joint
Jose "Pepe" Jalomo Jr. is a custom knifemaker who has honed his skill to perfection and this custom Trapper pattern slip joint is an excellent example of it and his attention to detail. The handle is a traditional Trapper pattern made from heat colored zirconium. The blade is a beautifully satin-finished Wharncliffe made from CPM-154 for modern performance.
Knife is brand new, direct from the maker at the 2019 USN Gathering in Las Vegas.
Blade: Premium CPM 154 stainless steel is finished with a beautiful, hand-rubbed satin finish and a subtle swedge tapering the Wharncliffe blade to a precision tip. CPM-154 delivers modern performance with a balance of edge retention, corrosion resistance, and toughness. The Wharncliffe profile and shallow hollow grind allow this knife to slice and pierce with optimal performance. A generous nail nick allows for easy opening of the blade on the smooth slip joint back spring, also made of CPM 154. Excellent walk and talk with a flush spine in all three positions.
Handle: The traditional Trapper pattern is executed with full heat colored zirconium scales which have been media blasted for a subtle rich feel in the hand. The back spring is equipped with a hand rubbed satin finish and is held in place via bronze anodized Ti hardware.
Hand-stitched leather pouch included for pocket carry and storage.
