 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 blade on this Andre Thorburn Gentleman’s flipper was Hand Ground from tough N690 which Andre gave a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed finish.  The handles are Carbon Fiber with Hand Textured Zirconium Bolsters.  Needles to say, the Action is Incredible.

This is one of Andre’s Most Popular sizes, just a bit of pressure on the flipper mechanism causes the blade to Leap into the Open and Locked Position!  Superb action that will bring a smile to your Face! Beautifully Hand Textured Zirconium Bolsters by Andre’s Wife shows some gorgeous subtle coloring.
