Description: Andre van Heerden started making handmade folders shortly after his start in 2002 and his natural talent at the craft is readily apparent. His dedication to use exacting standards and quality materials produce pieces that are superior in build and elegant in design. From lockup to fit and finish -- let alone edge holding -- Andre's knives are in a league of their own.
The blade is premium differentially finished M390 stainless steel. M390 is a true 'super-steel' and ensures exceptional edge holding with durability. A hollow grind makes for easy sharpening and shows off the clean, dramatic grind lines. The flats are mirror polished. Jimping on the thumb rest ensures a steadfast purchase.
Tan G-10 scales domed and textured. Anodized titanium liners surround the G-10 backbar. The domed handle conforms comfortably to the hand while jimping on the spine ensure a steadfast grip. A pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry. Despite the large size of this knife, using G-10 and titanium has kept it extremely light and nimble.
Exceptional work throughout!
