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.
Black and blue layered G10 scales are set on complementary jimped blue anodized titanium liners. Red spacers add a nice contrast to the anodized liners. By doming the scales, the alternating layers are exposed in attractive patterns. Black carbon fiber bolsters finish this elegant piece. The pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout on an eye catching knife.
