Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden created another amazing folder. The drop point blade has silky-smooth action and is perfectly centered. The mosaic damascus used throughout the knife 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 of the mosaic damascus blade is extremely complex and immediately grabs your attention. Mother of pearl has been perfectly inlaid into a frame of 416 stainless steel. Another unique pattern of mosaic was inlaid into the mother of pearl. 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. Fileworked titanium liners have been anodized to a complimentary shade of blue and surround the damascus steel backbar. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
