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.
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, quick touchups.
The blade is easily opened with a simple flick of the 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.
The dramatic scales are formed from laminated layers of orange G10 and black carbon fiber. These are set on anodized titanium liners. The liners and back spacer of grooved, for a secure, comfortable grip.
This folder is a classy and refined piece, yet a rugged and strong. It will be easy to keep it close at hand using the titanium pocket clip mounted for tip-up carry. Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout!
