Description: South African knifemakers André Thorburn and André Van Heerden create exceptional folders at an amazingly low price. They recently decided to collaborate on knives together -- creating their A2 knives.
The blade is perfectly centered and silky smooth -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The drop point blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The scales are formed from 3D carved G10. The domed carving provides a comfortable, secure grip. The scales combine olive green G10 and black carbon fiber in a finely fitted inlay. Rather than using two separate pieces end-butted together, Andre created the scales from olive green G10, milled out the section for the black G10, and inlaid it, resulting in a very strong construction! Jimping on the thumb ramp aids grip. The gently rounded handle feels sturdy and fills out the hand perfectly. The handle is completed with blue anodized titanium liners that elegantly contrast against the G10 scales. The titanium liners are hand fileworked. The ultra light black G10 pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
Exceptional fit throughout.
