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 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 hand ground modified sheepsfoot blade is RWL-34 stainless steel with a vapor blast finish. RWL-34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is manufactured from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and durability while maintaining very high wear resistance.
The 6Al-4V titanium handle features a matching vapor blast finish. The sturdy framelock provides a strong lockup. The pivot collar, backspacer, inlays, and pocket clip are matching heat colored Black Timascus zirconium/titanium damascus. The pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
