Description: This folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. A resident of Pretoria, Herucus (pronounced 'eh-roo-koos') has been a proud member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 2005. Ricus' folders combine incredibly smooth action with a high level of fit and finish.
The blade is perfectly centered and has incredibly smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The sheepsfoot blade is made from Bohler M390 stainless steel. It is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. M390 takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The scales are made from shredded carbon fiber. The bolsters are formed from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The bolsters and scales are perfectly fit together. Blue anodized titanium liners surround a carbon fiber backbar. The machined titanium pocketclip features a ceramic retention ball for effortless use. It is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
