Description: This folding liner lock by South African knifemaker Andre Thorburn is a great piece. The blade and bolsters feature Damascus by bladesmith Ettoré Gianferarri. His patterns are unique and created in very small runs so that the same Damascus is rarely seen on multiple folders. The patterns are exceptional. The nitre bluing process produces an iridescent quality to the Damascus with blue, green, purple and silver tones.
Exhibition grade blue tones mammoth ivory scales rest on anodized titanium liners. The scales have been dovetailed to the nitre blued mosaic Damascus bolsters. These have been fileworked in a tight vine pattern. Excellent fit and finish with a perfectly centered blade and great action. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
