 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 Andre Thorburn

~ Direct from the Maker ~ 

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 Gentleman’s Flippers 

 As with all his work, this knife exemplifies Extreme Precision ~  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 Elegant blade was Hand Ground from Neosteel – then Andre gave it a Flawless Hand Rubbed Satin finish. The handle scales are Lightweight Blue/Silver Carbon Fiber – but what really catches the eye are the Beautifully Hand Engraved Titanium Bolsters (these were Engraved by Andre’s Wife who no longer offers this art).

 Very secure Lock ~ Early Lock up and very secure.

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

Complete with a Low Rider Titanium Clip set for Tip Up carry

Complete with a COA and Protected by a Padded Zipper Storage Pouch. 


 A Custom Flipper with incredible Fit & Finish, direct from the Maker.
