Description: André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder at an amazingly low price. This piece has a great feel in the hand and will have exceptional edge holding. This compact, light knife will make a fantastic gentleman's every day carry but will also look great in any collection.
The Panzer 36 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. Panzer 36 is a martensitic stainless steel with high hardness, high wear resistance and good corrosion resistance. It is cross rolled in production to cancel out residual stresses from the manufacturing process. It has only recently begun being used by knifemakers and has gained significant acclaim by South African makers, where it has quickly found popularity. Mastersmith Kevin Harvey has been involved in the initial testing of Panzer 36 and describes it as having 'excellent edge holding and toughness.' The blade has been hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. By hand satin finishing the grinds and mirror polishing the flats, Andre accentuates the unique, crisp grind lines. As you would expect, the blade is perfectly centered and has a delightfully smooth action. The blade is completed with an inlaid thumb stud.
Mosaic damascus for the bolsters were forged by Ettore Gianferrari. The mosaic pattern is intricate and has tremendously detailed butterflies forged into the steel. Mammoth ivory scales combine caramel and green tones. Red fiber spacers assist the ivory to more readily adjust to temperature and humidity changes, while blue anodized titanium liners provide contrast and keep the knife light and fast.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
