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 blade is made from Swedish Damasteel which has been double tempered and cryogenically treated in liquid nitrogen. This style of treatment results in an incredibly long lasting edge, and high resistance to chipping.
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.
Carbon fiber scales rest on blue anodized titanium liners keeping this knife as light as it comes. A carbon fiber backbar matches the scales and keeps the knife light and strong. An elevated jimped thumb ramp provides for a secure thumb purchase.
Excellent work throughout!
