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 USN GXI Gathering ~
We have all heard the term used in Real Estate, “Location, Location, Location” – when referring to Andre’s knives I can safely use the same type of term ~ “Precision, Precision, Precision”!
The beautiful blade was Hand Ground from tough CTS-XHP which Andre then gave a Flawless Hand Rubbed finish.
The handle scales are Blue Twill Carbon Fiber and are Precision Fit to the Hand Stippled Titanium Bolsters. The Bolsters have alternating High Polished Geometric areas against Satin Stippled areas for a Dramatic effect.
The blade absolutely Leaps into the Open and Locked Position with just a touch of the Flipper! Incredible action that will bring a smile to your Face!
Perfect Lock up, early and very secure.
The Integral Thumb Recess along with the subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Anodized Ti Frame) make for a very comfortable Full Hand Grip.
Fully Fileworked and Anodized Ti Liners and a Full Length Black G10 backspacer add Strength to the design.
Complete with a Low Rider Clip, a Velcro Storage Pouch and Certificate Of Authenticity.
A Custom Flipper with amazing precision, direct from the Maker.
