Description: This exceptional folder is the work of South African knifemaker Andre Thorburn. It features a unique opening system Andre developed called a front flipper roll opening. This modification on a flipper opening is tremendously easy to use and does not catch when stored in the pocket. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is extraordinary! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed for balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play. This is among the smoothest knives I have ever felt.
The blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel. The twist pattern damascus displays particularly high contrast and is immediately captivating. Dramatic grind lines are perfectly centered and draw the eye along the blade towards the tip.
Mirror polished stainless steel scales are inlaid with jet black carbon fiber. Titanium liners and liner lock are fastidiously hand fileworked in a vine pattern and anodized to a blue tone. A lanyard loop completes the handle's construction.
Engraving on the handle is by Belgium-born artist Julien Marchal, who studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium. Julien meticulously engraved the steel surrounding the carbon fiber in ornamental scrolls. The backbar is engraved in a running wheat pattern. The elegant engraving combines the mirror polished steel and carbon fiber with vintage sophistication. Julien signs his engraving on the rear section of the left scale.
Attention has been paid to every detail throughout this knife, and the resulting fit and finish is phenomenal.
