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 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 IKBS 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. Twin Night Fire rag Micarta inlays are inlaid into the left scale. The backbar, pivot collar, and pocket clip are all made from Timascus titanium damascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
