Description: This exceptional folding knife was made by South African knifemaker Herucus Blomerus. Ricus is a good friend of Andre Thorburn and has had the opportunity to see many of Andre's secrets. 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.
Carbon fiber scales are set on fileworked blue anodized titanium liners. Blue G-10 spacers nicely match. Blue G-10 bolsters finish this elegant piece. The pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Herucus is clearly a maker to keep an eye out for - exceptional fit and finish throughout!
