Product Description

Andre Thorburn

 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 ~ 

Andre Thorburn 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 finest Gentleman’s Flippers that I feel offers incredible Value for the Price. 

 The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a near Flawless Satin Rubbed finish.   The handle is Carbon Fiber – the handles fit with precision against the textured and anodized titanium bolster onlays (textured by Marietjie Thorburn).

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 Recess along with the subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Ti Frame) make for a very comfortable Full Hand Grip.

 Fully Fileworked and Anodized Ti Liners with a Full Length Black G-10 backspacer.

Complete with a Low Rider Titanium Clip and a Padded Zipper Storage Pouch. 

 A Custom Flipper with an incredible price, direct from the Maker.
