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.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for South African Knife Makers Guild member Andre Thorburn.
~ Direct from the Maker from the NYCKS 2018 ~
Andre Thorburn is known World Wide for his precision Flippers. I can say without a doubt that his knives are among finest Gentleman’s Flippers that I have ever offered!
This blade was Hand Ground from tough CTS-XHP steel which Andre gave a near Flawless Hand Rubbed Satin finish.
The handle is Tight Weave Carbon Fiber and the handles fit with precision against the Beautifully Engraved Zirconum Bolsters
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!
Very secure Lock ~ Early Lock up and very secure.
The Integral Thumb Ramp along with the subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Ti Frame) make for a very comfortable Full Hand Grip.
This knife also features Andre’s Two Dimensional Fileworked and Anodized Ti Liners with a Full Length Black G-10 backspacer.
Complete with a Low Rider Titanium Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch.
A Custom Flipper with incredible Fit & Finish, direct from the Maker.
