Enjoy the look and feel of classic New Mexico artistry with this "Painted Desert" pattern lockback knife hand inlaid by Laguna Pueblo artisans, and featuring a superior-quality 2 3/4" stainless steel blade.
Popularized by Buck Knives in the 1960s (so much that the eponymous term "buck knife" came to refer to lockback knives in general), closing the blade requires applying pressure to the bar spring located towards the rear of the knife handle. This disengages the hook from the notch and releases the blade.
Since 1978, Santa Fe's Bill Wirtel has long had a reputation as one of the country's most respected master cutlers. Nestled in the shadows of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, in a one hundred year-old adobe ranch house, Santa Fe Stoneworks is as New Mexico as it gets.
"My grandfather was a stone cutter from Upper Bohemia where the logo for the Stonecutters’ Guild was called a ‘wirtel.’ I proudly carry on that tradition."Bill Wirtel, Santa Fe Stoneworks
