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.
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 is hollow ground for easy, quick touchups.
The blade is easily opened by using the ambidextrous flipper mechanism. It is perfectly centered and has silky-smooth action due to the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed for balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create smooth action with no blade play.
The handle scales are made from black Acrylester. The stunning marbling effect of the scales ranges in color from satin grey deep blacks. The textured stainless bolsters provide a steadfast grip that is also very beautiful. Titanium liners are fileworked and anodized to a deep blue. The machined titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. A ceramic ball held at the end makes it particularly easy to use.
A beatiful knife perfect for everyday carry.
