Description: André Thorburn developed this new mechanism in the spring of 2009. Knifemakers frequently struggle with a way to remove thumb studs from their knives. Not only do they get in the way, but faster opening can often be found with different mechanisms. This new mechanism is exceptional. The blade is easily opened by running either the thumb or first finger along the textured 'roll' at the back of the blade.
The clip point 19C27 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished on the grinds and mirror polished on the flats, creating a striking contrast. The steel, which is in the same family as 12C27, is tremendously wear-resistant and takes on an incredibly keen, long lasting edge. It is one of those rare steels that has exceptional edge holding and can be easily stropped from sort-of dull to scary sharp. The scales combine black and coyote G10. Rather than using three separate pieces, Andre created the G10 handle and inlaid a central G10 insert. This results in very strong scales that are set on blue anodized titanium liners. Exceptional fit throughout. Perfectly centered blade with smooth action. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
