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 materials available. We were excited when he asked if we could feature some of his work at BladeGallery while we were visiting at the 2019 annual Knifemakers' Guild of Southern Africa Show. Siince then, each new set of knives shows innovation and tremendous skill.
This is among the first of van der Westhuizen's Slimline Front Flipper design. The drop point blade is made from Thor pattern stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth drop shut action thanks to the ceramic IKBS bearing system. The blade can easily be deployed using the ambidextrous front flipper tab. The small front flipper ensures that it won't get caught on things in the pocket.
The polished 6Al-4V titanium handle has a sturdy framelock for a strong lockup. Blacklip mother of pearl is inlaid into the left scale. The backbar, pivot collar, and pocket clip are all made from heat colored Timascus titanium damascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
