Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder at an amazingly low price. The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The slightly recurved clip point blade of N690 stainless steel is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. N690 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds it. The increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
Silver twill scales are polished for a smooth, comfortable grip. The handle is complemented with blue anodized titanium liners, which are intricately hand filed in a vine pattern. The back spacer is stainless steel, as are the bolsters. The stainless bolsters are textured and display a polished fleur de lis design.
