Description: Andre van Heerden started making handmade folders shortly after his start in 2002 and his natural talent at the craft is readily apparent. His dedication to use exacting standards and quality materials produce pieces that are superior in build and elegant in design. From lockup to fit and finish -- let alone edge holding -- Andre's knives are in a league of their own.
The 12C27 stainless steel blade has been hand satin finished on the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. This accentuates the clean, crisp grind lines. The blade can be easily deployed one-handed using the thumb stud.
Bead blasted 416 stainless steel bolsters are perfectly dovetailed to exhibition grade snakewood. The snakewood scales have dramatic dark striping across a warm brown toned background. Titanium liners are anodized a deep bronze and hand filed into a vine pattern. The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth action. It is easily kept close at hand in the leather pocket pouch.
