Description: Francois Massyn started making knives in 1989 and with the help of renowned knifemaker Fanie la Grange, he joined the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa in 1990. He currently focuses his work on IKBS flippers and developed his skills with the help of Andre Thorburn.
The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth, drop shut action -- easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System). This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The blade is hand ground stainless damascus forged in Sweden by Damasteel. The high contrast pattern immediately grabs attention. The broad blade provides a particularly dramatic canvas and shows Francois' grinding skills at their best. Damasteel takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it.
Artic Storm FatCarbon handle scales art set on anodized titanium liners. The liners surround a stainless damascus backspacer. They meet perfectly with Titanium damascus bolsters. The flipper doubles as a front guard that keeps your hand from sliding forward onto the blade. The handle is completed with anodized titanium liners that elegantly contrast against the scales and carbon fiber backspacer. The anodized titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout.
