Description: Des Horn makes knives that have an intrinsic harmony. This elegant gent's flipper shows Horn's work at its best.
This Thiers gent's flipper has handles of premium snakewood. This rare wood is a medium brown with dark chocolate striations. Anodized and hand fileworked titanium liners are formed from Grade V titanium. These surround a carbon fiber back spacer.
The blade is formed from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The high contrast steel is both dramatic and extremely high performing. To get the keenest, longest lasting edge, Des hardens the blade then cryogenically quenches it in liquid nitrogen. Finally, it is double tempered for durability. The indent ball is silicon nitride (Hrc 93!).
Snakewood handle scales meet perfectly with stainless damascus bolsters in an elegant S-curve. The front flipper opener is easy to use. The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth, consistent action.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
