 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.

~ 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 XL Gentleman’s Flippers 

Andre does not make many of these XL Models!  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 tough CT-XHP Stainless steel – then Andre gave it a Flawless Hand Rubbed Satin finish. The handle scales are Lightweight Silver Twill Carbon Fiber – but what really catches the eye are the Beautifully Hand Engraved Titanium Bolsters (these are Engraved by Andre’s Wife).

There are subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Ti Frame) which make for a very Secure Full Hand Grip.
