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.
The blade is easily opened by using the ambidextrous flipper mechanism. It is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action due to the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed for balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play.
The hand ground drop point N690 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished. N690 is created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. The increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood scales meet perfectly to hand-engraved zirconium bolsters. The engraver is Belgium-born artist Julien Marchal. Julien studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium prior to emigrating to South Africa. The engraving features elegant floral scroll engraving. Bronze anodized titanium liners, hand filed into a vine pattern, keep the knife light yet strong. The knife is easy to keep close at hand using the 3D machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball, which is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
