Description: South African knifemaker Anton van der Westhuizen is from Port Elizabeth. He is an active member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa. Lately he has been creating high end, elegant folding knives using only the best modern materials available. Some years ago, we were excited when he asked if we could feature some of his work at BladeGallery while we were visiting at the annual Knifemakers' Guild of Southern Africa Show, and his work has continued to develop and grow since then.
The raised harpoon blade is made from heat colored Nebula damascus forged by renowned bladesmith Bertie Rietveld. The complex damascus pattern catches the eye and inspires the imagination. The heat colored steel has a stunning brilliance that changes between purple and blue when turned in the light. Because the blade is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade from rust and oxidation.
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 front flipper tab. Disengage the lock and the blade effortlessly drops shut.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle is bead blasted. The sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. The pivot, backspacer, inlays, and pocket clip are made from matching heat colored Black Timascus zirconium/titanium damascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
