Description: This elegant Le Thiers folder was inspired by the classic French knife. This one-of-a-kind version was handmade by renowned South African knifemaker Neels Roos.
The blade was hand ground from Hakkapella pattern stainless damascus by Damasteel. At 60 Hrc, it is sure to have a keen, long lasting edge. The hollow ground blade is well centered with smooth action. It is easily flicked out with the inobtrusive front flipper tab. With a little practice, the front flipper can be easily used with either your forefinger or thumb.
Blue lightning strike carbon fiber scales meet with engraved stainless steel bolsters in an elegant, perfect curve. The floral scroll engraving was done by Roos and inspired by Araud van Tilburgh of Belgium. Bronze anodized grade 5 titanium liners surround an N690 stainless steel backbar. The backbar is etched.
Exceptional work throughout!
