Description: This folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. It is among his master works to date. A resident of Pretoria, Herucus (pronounced 'eh-roo-koos') has been a proud member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 2005. His folders combine incredibly smooth action with a high level of fit and finish.
The drop point blade is made from ladder pattern stainless damascus forged by Chad Nichol's. The bold damascus pattern is nicely shown in the high blade grind and nearly hidden in the flats. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The scales are made from antique Westinghouse Micarta. This Micarta was developed in 1910 by Westinghouse Electric Corporation as an industrial thermo-set laminate for electrical insulation. This light toned Micarta was lost in a warehouse and only recently discovered. The top show the beautiful yellowing with age that makes this Micarta so captivating. The bolsters are formed from matching stainless damascus and are perfectly fit to the Micarta scales. Titanium liners have been hand filed into a vine pattern and anodized a deep blue. The liners surround a matching stainless ladder pattern damascus backbar. The anodized 3D machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
