Description: This exceptional folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. I was very excited when Andre Thorburn and Andre Van Heerden introduced me to their friend. His work immediately caught my attention. A resident of Pretoria, Herucus (pronounced 'eh-roo-koos') has been a proud member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 2005.
The drop point Panzer 36 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. Panzer 36 is a martensitic stainless steel with high hardness, high wear resistance and good corrosion resistance. It is cross rolled in production to cancel out residual stresses from the manufacturing process. It has only recently begun being used by knifemakers and has gained significant acclaim by South African makers, where it has quickly found popularity. The blade has been hollow ground for easy, quick touchups.
A unique combination of black carbon fiber and red G10 scales are set on blue anodized titanium liners. By shaping the scales, the alternating layers are exposed in attractive patterns. Bead blasted and texturized stainless steel bolsters finish this piece, echoing the simple and elegant geometric lines in the blade and handle.
Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout!
