Lloyd Hale folder, made by a maker who was making art knives before there were art knives. His artistry is well noted, but the acclaim that found its way to many other makers did not reach full potential for Hale, as for over 20 years everything he made was purchased by one art patron (Owlsey Brown Fraizer of Brown Distilleries i.e. Jack Daniels among many other brands). Fraizer did not wanted Hale selling knives at shows or being subject to others influence, and was allowed to follow his own artistic muse in cutlery. His work is hailed as among the most artistic in the world, and this clean folder is an example. Pinless handles, fileworked liners and bade back, and unique twisted lanyard locking bar. Mint. Rope engraving all the way around this knife, 3 1/2'' closed, 6 1/4'' oal. Closed the blade extends beyond the frame and is cradled by the curled locking bar. Unique.
