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 N690 stainless blade is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. N690 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. The increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade has been hollow ground for easy touch ups.
The blade is easily opened with a simple flick of the wrist or using flipper mechanism. The blade is well centered and has silky smooth action, due to the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play.
Polished carbon fiber scales are contoured for a comfortable fit in the hand. Vine fileworked, blue anodized titanium liners keep this large, sturdy knife light and fast. A stainless steel pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout!
