Description: South African knifemaker André Thorburn creates an exceptional folder. The blade is perfectly centered. The flipper opening is tremendously easy to use for quick deployment. When combined with the IKBS ball bearing system, the action is exceptional! 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. Andre is a master of the IKBS pivot, and this is as smooth as a knife gets!
The clip point blade is formed from N690 stainless 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. By differentially finishing the blade, Andre has emphasized his clean grind lines.
The scales are formed from blue lightning strike carbon fiber. Copper wires travel through the blue/black carbon strands. Jimping on the thumb ramp provides a comfortable, secure grip. The gently rounded handle feels sturdy and fills out the hand perfectly. This combination nicely complements the anodized and engraved titanium bolsters. The handle is completed with anodized titanium liners and red fiber spacers. The pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry and features a non-reflective TiAlN coating.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
