Description: South African knifemaker Anton van der Westhuizen is from Port Elizabeth. He is an active member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern 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 spear point blade is made from Cerakote finished M390 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto 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 easy maintenance.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle features a blacked out hamertone Cerakote finish. A sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. The backbar, pivot collar, and pocket clip are all made from matching Timascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
