I was very fortunate to begin working with several South African Knife Makers many years ago, I am continually impressed with the Quality of their knives and the value they offer. In my journey as a knife dealer several SA Makers have introduced me to other SA Makers and the list of quality knives that I sell from that country continues to grow.
The newest addition to my website is South African Knife Makers Guild member Andre Thorburn.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Andre Thorburn
~ Direct from the Maker from NYCKS 2017 ~
Andre Thorburn is known World Wide for his precision Flippers. I can say without a doubt that THIS KNIFE is one of the finest Gentleman’s Flippers that I have ever offered!
This is one of Andre’s Most Popular Flipper Models, just a bit of pressure on the flipper mechanism causes the blade to Leap into the Open and Locked Position! Incredible action that will bring a smile to your Face!
The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel – then Andre gave it a Flawless Hand Rubbed Satin finish.
Very secure Lock ~ Early Lock up and very secure.
The handle scales are great looking Silver Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber – but what really catches the eye are the Beautifully Hand Engraved Zirconium Bolsters (these are Engraved by Andre’s Wife).
There are subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Ti Frame) which make for a very Secure Full Hand Grip.
This knife also features Andre’s new Two Dimensional Fileworked and Anodized Ti Liners with a Full Length Black G-10 backspacer.
Complete with a Low Rider Titanium Clip set for Tip Up carry
Protected by a Padded Velcro Storage Pouch.
A Custom Flipper with incredible Fit & Finish, direct from the Maker.
