Description: Andre de Villiers' sturdy utility folders are a pleasure to own, to hold, and - most importantly - to use.
The blade of this Hummer was formed from 19C27 stainless steel, which is in the same family as 12C27. It is one of those rare steels that has exceptional edge holding and can be easily stropped from sort-of-dull to scary-sharp in a few moments. The blade has smooth action and is perfectly centered. It features a fascinating grind, Andre's own "nightmare" design. It is both highly decorative and tremendously useful - the front section of the blade is perfectly designed for a swift and effective puncture or thrust, whereas the primary grind takes a keen, fine edge. A jimped flipper opening mechanism means the blade is always moments away from ready-to-use, and a thumb stud offers the user an alternative method of opening the knife.
The scales are formed from sculpted G10, which is a high-tech material developed for strategic use in the most unforgiving environments. It will not shrink, move, or conduct electricity. The liners, liner lock, back spacers and pocket clip are satin finished to match the blade. Jimping on the liners is revealed where the G10 has been recessed - complimenting the sculpted G10 well and also aiding grippiness during use. The absence of a backbar allows for easy cleaning and lighter construction. The scales are completed with three torx head bolts that are satin finished to match the liners. The pocket clip is set for tip up carry. Nice work throughout!
