Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder. The blade is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action. 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. It is easily opened with the front flipper and is as smooth as a knife gets!
The clip point blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel. The complex damascus pattern is called Heimskringla. The steel is particularly high contrast and immediately captivating. This damascus is well known for its exceptional edge holding. A hollow grind ensures an easy to sharpen, long lasting edge.
Carbon fiber scales sit on anodized titanium liners, creating a knife that is as light as it gets. The liners have been hand filed and surround a stainless steel backbar. The bolsters are matching Heimskringla pattern Damasteel. Includes a pierced titanium pocket clip that is mounted for tip-up carry.
If you are looking for a gentleman's folder that performs as well as it looks, then it doesn't get much better than this!
