Description: This exceptional folding knife by Andre Thorburn features a stainless damascus Damasteel blade. The dramatic, high contrast blade is hollow ground for a long lasting, easy to maintain edge. By mirror polishing the flats, Andre emphasizes the perfect, clean grind lines.
Presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood scales have a nice mix of mid and dark warm tones with swirling figure. The bolsters were meticulously hand engraved by Julien Marchal. Belgium-born artist Julien Marchal studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium. Vine fileworked, blue anodized titanium liners keep this large, sturdy knife light and fast.
The front flipper mechanism is easy to operate for single handed open, yet provides a slimmer profile and is less likely to catch on things when carried in the pocket. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky smooth action Exceptional fit throughout.
