Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder at an amazingly low price. The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with the thumbstud. The drop point 12C27 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. 304 stainless steel bolsters are textured, providing an attractive, secure thumb rest. Blue anodized titanium liners surround a 12C27 stainless steel back spacer. The scales are exhibition grade curly koa and have a dramatic, tight curl with exceptional chatoyancy. Red fiber spacers allow the wood to adjust to temperature and humidity variances. Exceptional work throughout.
