Description: South African knifemaker Anton van der Westhuizen is from Port Elizabeth. He is an active member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa. He creates high end, elegant folding knives using only the best 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 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 flipper tab. Disengage the lock and the blade drops shut effortlessly.
The raised clip wharncliffe blade is heat colored Nebula damascus forged by renowned bladesmith Bertie Rietveld. The complex damascus pattern catches the eye and inspires the imagination. Because the blade is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade from rust and oxidation.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle features a vapor blasted finish. The sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. Inlays, backspacer and pocket clip are matching heat colored Black Timascus zirconium/titanium damascus. The pivot features a 24K gold inlaid Celtic knot. The Back Timascus pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
