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, quick touchups.
The action is silky smooth, thanks to the IKBS ball bearing system, and it is perfectly centered without the slightest wobble. The IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play. It is easily opened using the flipper mechanism.
Warm toned presentation grade desert ironwood forms a nice contrast to the hand textured stainless steel bolsters Blue anodized titanium liners surround the stainless steel back spacer. A pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip up carry and keeps the knife close at hand.
Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout!
