Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden creates an amazing folder -- and at a price that could never be found from an American handmade knife. This massive flipper is among his most dramatic EDC folders to date.
The S35VN stainless steel blade has been hand satin finished on the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. This accentuates the sweeping, crisp grind lines. S35VN is a super-steel created by Crucible. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. It is a rare steel that is also easily stropped back to a keen, hair popping edge. It is 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. The increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is easily opened with a simple flick of the wrist or using flipper mechanism. The blade is well centered and has silky smooth action, due to the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed for balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play.
3D textured G10 provides a sure, comfortable grip. Titanium liners and a titanium backbar keep the knife light and fast. It is easy to keep this handmade folder close at hand with the pocket clip mounted for tip-up carry. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
