Description: Des Horn is one of the fathers of the South African knife industry. His influence can be clearly seen in other South African's work, but also extends into knives made around the world. Whether put to a daily carry folder or an art knife, his attention to detail and skill is legendary.
The Slimvubu is Des' ultra-light version of his renowned Imbuvu. Carbon fiber and titanium keep this knife as light and fast as it comes.
The blade is formed from high performing RWL-34 stainless steel. RWL 34 is a premium powder metallurgy cutlery steel manufactured by ERASTEEL in Söderfors, Sweden. Because it is manufactured from rapidly solidified powders, the microstructure of the steel is much more uniform. This gives the steel much higher strength and resistance to cracking. Des Horn double tempered and cryogenically treated the steel in liquid nitrogen for the ultimate in edge holding and strength.
The blade is perfectly centered and has silky smooth action. It is easily opened using the front flipper mechanism. This style of flipper is not designed to be flicked open, but instead is rotated with the thumb.
The scales of this EDC are made from carbon fiber. The surface is machined into a twist pattern. It feels exceptional in the hand yet disappears in the pocket. The handle is completed with blue anodized titanium liners that elegantly contrast against the carbon fiber scales. The ultra-light machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
Exceptional fit throughout.
