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 the ECCKS 2017 ~
Andre is known World Wide for his precision Flippers, so I am very excited to offer his work to my Customers / this is one of his amazing Engraved Gentleman’s Flippers
The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a near Flawless finish and the handles of Carbon Fiber with some Hand Textured Stainless Bolsters.
This is one of Andre’s Most Popular Flippers, 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!
Superb action and perfect Lock Up.
The Contoured Scales and subtle Thumb Ridges make for a very secure Full Hand Grip.
Andre also gave this knife a Fully Fileworked and Anodized Titanium Frame with a G10 backspacer.
Complete with a Low Rider Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch.
A Custom Flipper with an incredible price, direct from the Maker.
