Leaf Storm, Titanium & Natural G-10 Handle, Plain.
Why graphic artists make the leap to knifemaking is
self explanatory. Their work in designing and creating art comingles
with their knife passion, in some cases their knife obsession, blurring
the lines between livelihood and hobby. American Kevin Wilkins started
as a graphic designer and art student then an art director. He moved to
Berlin in the early 90s where the knife bug really sank in. By 1995 he
worked out how to make his hobby a livelihood and one of his favorite
designs he called the Leaf Storm. Spyderco’s production version, like
his original custom piece, fits and carries in the watch-pocket of a
pair of denim jeans. It features a Chris Reeve style integral Lock with
the back titanium handle scale doubling as the lock’s liner. Screw
together construction attaches the titanium back to a natural colored
G-10 front scale. A hollow-ground CPM®-S30V blade has a ricasso, spine
jimping and is available in a PlainEdge.
