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. This special IKBS knife was created with ceramic ball bearings. Generally IKBS bearings are made either from tool steel or from stainless steel. Stainless steel can wear away, resulting in uneven action over time. Tool steel bearings can oxidize making the action rough. Ceramic bearings are the best of all worlds -- extremely hard and wear resistant, they are also inert and will not oxidize.
This LL14M flipper features a Carbon Virus damascus sheepsfoot. This damascus is forged from stainless steels by Chad Nichols in the United States. The steel will have exceptional edge retention and chip resistance. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are made from marble carbon fiber and meet seamlessly to dual toned mokume gane bolsters. Bronze anodized, vine pattern filed 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!
