Description: This exceptional folder is the work of South African knifemaker Andre Thorburn. The blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel. This stainless damascus has excellent edge holding and has been hardened to Rc58. The blade is well centered and has smooth action.
The 303 stainless steel bolsters feature detailed hand engraving of calla lilies by the maker. They are dovetailed to black lip mother of pearl scales for a perfect fit. Red fiber spacers assist the knife to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Blue anodized titanium liners have been hand fileworked in a tight vine pattern. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
