 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 modified Spear Point 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 Blue & Black Carbon Fiber Weave with Hand Textured Zirconium Bolsters.  Needless to say, the Action is Incredible.
