Description: Celtic Knot is among Andre Thorburn's master works to date. It is increasingly rare to find exquisite, highly engraved knives by Andre.
It features an opening system called a front flipper 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 exceptional! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play. This is as smooth as a knife gets!
The blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel. The complex damascus pattern is called Twist. The steel is particularly high contrast and immediately captivating. By mirror polishing the flats, Andre emphasizes the clean, swooping grind lines and provides contrast.
The 416 stainless steel frame is inlaid with two sections of black carbon fiber. Central arches of stainless steel have been meticulously hand engraved by Julien Marchal. Belgium-born artist Julien Marchal studied engraving and gun making at Léon Mignon Liège in Belgium and now lives in South Africa. Complex Celtic knots twist and writhe on the surface of the steel. Titanium liners are meticulously hand fileworked and anodized to a light blue tone. The knife is accompanied by a fleece-lined soft pouch.
Attention to detail has been paid throughout this knife, with the fit and finish exceptional.
