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. Herecus' folders combine incredibly smooth action with a high level of fit and finish.
The drop point blade is made from N690 stainless steel. The blade is meticulously hand satin finished in the grinds and mirror polished on the flats. N690 is a 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 perfectly centered and has incredibly smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade 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 scales are made from copper wire carbon fiber. This variation of lightning strike carbon fiber features copper wire that has been woven vertically through the carbon fiber as opposed to horizontally. The bolsters are formed from stainless steel that have been bead blasted and differentially finished. Titanium liners have been fileworked and anodized a deep blue. The liners surround a backbar made from N690 stainless steel. The 3D machined titanium pocket clip with ceramic retention ball is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
This is a true gentleman's knife with exquisite action!
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
