Description: This folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. A resident of Pretoria, Herucus (pronounced 'eh-roo-koos') has been a proud member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 2005. Ricus' folders combine incredibly smooth action with a high level of fit and finish.
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. This special folder is made with ceramic ball bearings. Generally IKBS bearings are made either from tool steel or from stainless steel. Stainless steel can wear away, resulting in uneven action over time. Tool steel bearings can oxidize making the action rough. Ceramic bearings are the best of all worlds -- extremely hard and wear resistant, they are also inert and will not oxidize.
The blade is made from stainless damascus forged by Damasteel. The dramatic damascus is called Vinland pattern. This high performing stainless damascus steel is created using powder metallurgical steel manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The scales are made from carbon fiber. Bolsters are formed from Zladinox titanium damascus. This material is created by folding different grades of titanium layers together and heat coloring it. The bolsters and scales are perfectly fit together. Blue anodized titanium liners have been filed into a vine pattern. The machined titanium pocketclip features a ceramic retention ball for effortless use. It is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
