Walt's Custom Pick Lock

Post by thom » Sun Apr 12, 2020 3:39 pm

Here is a beautiful Walt's. I think this is 1 of 2. The other is Cocobolo scaled. Expensive but worth every penny. This knife sports beautiful exhibition grade Brazilian Horn, N/S bolsters, flat guards, dagger blade, Sapphire fire button and very tasteful file work on back spring and on the brass liners. Including file work on inner spring. Fires hard with the familiar Latama thunk, opens with zero play and closes dead center. All this expected from a Walt's Custom.
What I am most impressed with is the feel. Fits perfectly in hand. Hard to see in pictures, but the right side of handle is shaved making it rounded. No sharp edge. The left side is also shaved, but not quite as much, making it more flat for a very comfortable/secure fit for my thumb. Giving it vintage feel, more like my older knives. Hard to show the shaved scales, but the last couple pictures try to show it.
I could not be happier with this knife. Might be the best knife I own. My thanks to Walt and Tank at T=bar-K. Exceptional job.

That's one beautiful piece of artwork. Love those scales - wish I could find some slabs like that to have one of mine re-scaled just like it!
Congratulations on another super nice addition to your collection!

Amazing, this is the pinnacle of Walt’s custom line right here. This piece just doesn’t get any better than this. Walt’s custom knives are out of this world!

Thanks for your responses. It really is an incredible knife in every way. On par with any custom I own and then some. I bought it minutes after it was available. Lucky to have got it.
The way it fits my hand is like nothing else I have.
