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.
The S35VN stainless steel blade has been hand satin finished on the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. The blade is easily opened with a simple flick of the wrist or using the flipper mechanism. The blade has silky smooth action, due to the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play.
Very rare lightning strike carbon fiber scales rest on anodized titanium, keeping this knife light and fast. Copper strands move through the carbon fiber weave. This type of carbon fiber was originally designed for use on fighter jets to redirect electricity. Lightning strike carbon fiber is among the hardest to find knifemaking materials. Titanium liners keep the knife light and fast. It is easy to keep this folder close at hand with the titanium pocket clip mounted for tip-up carry.
