Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder at an amazingly low price. The blade has smooth action and is easily opened with a flick of the thumb stud.
The drop point 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 from 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.
The scales combine OD and black G10 in a finely fitted inlay. Rather than using two separate pieces butted together, Andre created the olive drab G10 handle and inlaid black G10 into the bolster section. This results in very strong scales! The handle is completed with blue anodized titanium liners. Exceptional fit throughout.
