Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden creates an amazing folder -- and at a price that could never be found from an American or European maker.
The hollow ground stainless steel blade has silky-smooth action and is well centered. By hand satin finishing the grinds and mirror polishing the flats, Andre accentuates the dramatic grind lines. Mosaic Damascus bolsters were forged by Ettoré Gianferarri, assuring that the patterns will be unique and different from those generally found on the American market. The bolsters have been torch hot blued to accentuate the already complex pattern. Fossil mammoth molar is used for the scales. The scales are dovetailed to the bolsters for a perfect fit. Red fiber spacers allow the scales to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Titanium liners have been fileworked and blue anodized. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
