Description: This exceptional folder is the work of South African knifemaker Andre Thorburn. The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with the thumbstud. The drop point 12C27 stainless blade was meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats, resulting in clean, dramatic grind lines. The mosaic Damascus used for the bolsters was forged by South African 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 pattern is exceptional and immediately captivating
Caramel tones prevail in the fossil mammoth ivory scales, with hints of blue. The grain structure is particularly dramatic. The scales are dovetailed to the bolsters for a perfect fit. Blue anodized titanium liners have been fileworked and surround the satin finished stainless backbar. Excellent fit and finish throughout with silky smooth action and a perfectly centered blade.
