Description: South African knifemaker Hennie Du Plessis creates an exceptional folder. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth, drop shut 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 hand ground N690 stainless steel, created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. By differentially finishing the blade, Hennie has emphasized his clean grind lines.
Handle scales are Arctic Storm FatCarbon set on anodized titanium liners. The pivot collar and pocket clip are heat colored Timascus titanium damascus. Jimping on the thumb ramp provides a comfortable, secure grip. The gently rounded handle feels sturdy and fills your hand perfectly. Anodized titanium liners surround a raised, polished backspacer. The titanium damascus pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
