Description: South African knifemaker, Andre Van Heerden, creates an amazing folder -- and at a price that could never be found from an American handmade knife.
The 12C27 stainless steel blade has been hand satin finished on the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. This accentuates the unique, crisp grind lines. The thumb ramp has been fileworked for a secure thumb purchase.
Andre inlaid exhibition grade snakewood into the black G10 scales. Adding to the strength of the design, Andre set G10 around each of the screws. Anodized titanium liners.
The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action, due to the IKBS (Ikoma Koth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with virtually no blade play.
It is easily kept close at hand worn using the tip up pocket clip. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
