Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden created another amazing folder. The drop point blade has silky-smooth action and is perfectly centered. The stainless damascus blade is Damasteel damascus and has a dramatic twist pattern culminating in stars at the base of the hollow grind.
Mother of pearl has been perfectly inlaid into a frame of 416 stainless steel. Mother of pearl is particularly difficult to work with in this way. When mother of pearl is cut, it often chips and fractures. Here, Andre has executing his cuts with perfect precision. Another unique pattern of mosaic damascus was inlaid into the mother of pearl. This damascus was forged by Ettoré Gianferarri, assuring that the patterns will be unique and different from those generally found on the American market. The dramatic pattern is extremely complex and immediately grabs your attention. Fileworked titanium liners have been anodized to a complimentary shade of blue and surround the damascus steel backbar. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
