Description: South African knifemaker Anton van der Westhuizen is from Port Elizabeth. He is an active member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa. He creates 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 Knifemakers' Guild of Southern Africa Show.
The raised harpoon clip blade is made from RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is manufactured from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and durability while maintaining very high wear resistance. 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 flipper tab. Disengage the lock and the blade drops shut effortlessly.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle features a blacked out Cerakote finish. The sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. The custom pivot, pivot collar, backbar, and pocket clip are made from matching heat colored Timascus titanium damascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
