Description: South African knifemaker Anton van der Westhuizen is from Port Elizabeth. He is an active member of the Knifemakers Guild of South Africa. Lately he has been creating high end, elegant folding knives using only the best modern materials available. We were excited when he asked if we could feature some of his work at BladeGallery while we were visiting at the annual Knifemakers' Guild of Southern Africa Show.
The raised clip wharncliffe blade is made from blackened Nebula damascus forged by renowned bladesmith Bertie Rietveld. The complex damascus pattern catches the eye and inspires the imagination. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action thanks to the ceramic caged bearing system. The blade can easily be deployed using the ambidextrous flipper tab. Because the blade is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade from rust and oxidation.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle features a blacked out Cerakote finish. A sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. The scales surround a Nebula damascus backbar that includes a spot to add a lanyard. A matching Nebula damascus pivot collar surrounds the blacked out pivot. A pocket clip, forged from Rietveld's Nebula pattern damascus, is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
