Description: Keith Kruger is the son-in-law of renowned South African knifemaker André Thorburn. Working in the same workshop as Andre has allowed him to create truly exceptional knives despite his only having made knives for a few years.
Like Andre's knives, the blade of this flipper is perfectly centered and has some of the smoothest action you'll ever feel. It is easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The drop point blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. By differentially polishing the blade, Keith emphasizes his clean grind lines.
The scales combine black and blue G10 in a finely fitted inlay. The black G10 scales were then carved so the blue G10 is raised slightly above the surface of the black G10 surrounding it. The results are exceptional! The handle is completed with blue anodized titanium liners and a machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
