Description: Keith Kruger is the son-in-law of renowned South African knifemaker André Thorburn. Working in the same workshop as Andre has allows 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. Keith created this K1 Flipper with ceramic ball bearings. Generally IKBS bearings are made either from tool steel or from stainless steel. Stainless steel can wear away, resulting in uneven action over time. Tool steel bearings can oxidize making the action rough. Ceramic bearings are the best of all worlds. Extremely hard and wear resistant, they are also inert and will not oxidize.
The drop point blade is formed from N690 stainless steel, a super-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 polishing the blade, Keith has emphasized his clean grind lines.
The scales combine black and desert tan G-10 in a finely fitted inlay. The results are exceptional! The zirconium pivot is satin finished rather than anodized. The handle is completed with bronz anodized titanium liners and a machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball.
Exceptional fit throughout.
