Description: This folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. A resident of Pretoria, Herucus (pronounced 'eh-roo-koos') has been a proud member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 2005. His folders combine incredibly smooth action with a high level of fit and finish.
The spearpoint blade is made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The bold, deeply etched damascus pattern is nicely shown in the grinds and nearly hidden in the flats. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are made from presentation grade snakewood (Brosimum guianense). Snakewood of this quality is particularly rare. The warm mid-toned wood has dramatic, high contrast striations.
Zirconium bolsters are hand-engraved by Belgium-born artist Julien Marchal. Marchal. Julien studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium prior to emigrating to South Africa. The bolsters are perfectly fit to the snakewood scales. Titanium liners have been hand filed into a vine pattern and anodized blue. The liners surround a carbon fiber backbar. The 3D machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
