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.
This folder features a unique opening system developed by fellow South African knifemaker Andre Thorburn, called a front flipper. This modification on a flipper opening is incredibly easy to use and does not catch when stored in the pocket. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is phenomenal!! The Ikoma Korth Bearing System (IKBS) was originally designed to fit balisong knives and uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The drop point blade is formed from Swedish Damasteel. The steel is particularly high contrast and immediately captivating. The flats have been polished to a mirror finish, nearly eliminating the pattern, whereas the hollow grinds feature a deep etch. The combined finishes are exquisite, emphasizing the perfect, clean grind lines. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. A small ricasso makes re-sharpening easy.
Carbon fiber scales meet perfectly to the stainless steel bolsters. The bolsters feature hand textured bands that are quite elegant. Titanium liners are anodized blue and are hand fileworked in a vine pattern. The handle is completed with a carbon fiber backbar and red fiber spacers.
Excellent work throughout!
