Description: This exceptional folding knife by Andre Thorburn features a stainless damascus blade forged by Achim Wirtz. Sharp undulations move across the steel. It is hollow ground for a long lasting, easy to maintain edge. By mirror polishing the flats, Andre emphasizes the perfect, clean grind lines.
Carbon fiber scales keep the knife strong and light weight. 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. Blue anodized titanium liners keep this large, sturdy knife light and fast. A machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
The blade is perfectly centered and has an incredibly 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 exceptional action with virtually no blade play. The blade is easily opened with the ambidextrous flipper.
Exceptional fit throughout.
