Description: South African knifemaker Hennie Du Plessis creates an exceptional folder. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is exceptional! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The blade is Nebula pattern damascus, hand forged by renowned South African bladesmith Bertie Rietveld. Bertie combined carbon steels to create the intricate pattern. The heat colored damascus takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are mammoth ivory, set on anodized titanium liners. Jimping on the thumb ramp provides a comfortable, secure grip. Damascus bolsters are mosaic damascus forged by Mastersmith Heather Harvey. Heather's damascus is increasingly hard to find and this is a beautiful example of her work. Textured and anodized titanium liners surround a raised Nebula damascus backspacer.
The knife is accompanied by a custom made wood presentation case.
Excellent work throughout!
