Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder. This dramatic dress folder is sure to be a knife that you'll keep by your side as you cherish it in a collection. The action is silky smooth -- easily opened with one hand using the thumbstud.
The N690 stainless blade 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, and the blade has been hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Beautiful black poplar burl wood scales meet up with 303 stainless steel bolsters that are finely and elegantly hand textured in a Celtic knot work design, providing a steadfast grip that is also very unique. The handle is completed with blue fileworked and anodized titanium liners that elegantly contrast the wood scales. The pierced titanium pocket clip is similarly anodized and is mounted for tip-up carry.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
