Description: South African knifemaker Andre van Heerden creates an amazing folder -- and at a price that could never be found from an American maker.
The drop point blade was hollow ground from 12C27 stainless steel and will hold an exceptional edge. By mirror polishing the flats and giving the grinds a hand rubbed satin finish, Andre accentuates the dramatic grinds. The blade has silky-smooth action and is easily opened using the mother of pearl thumb stud. It is perfectly centered.
The bolsters are formed from 416 stainless steel and have been meticulously engraved by Helene von Wyk. Exhibition grade mammoth molar scales that have captivating alternating dark and light striations. Bronze anodized titanium liners have been fileworked. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
