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
From the Maker at the Recent ECCKS 2015
Andre is known World Wide for his precision Flippers, so I am very excited to introduce his work to my Customers
This is one of Andre’s Front Flippers, the right amount of pressure on the discreet Front mechanism causes the blade to Leap into the Open and Locked Position! Incredible action that will bring a smile to your Face!
This blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a Lustrous, Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed finish.
The handle is Gorgeous Carbon Fiber Weave with eye catching Highlights when rotated back and forth in the light.
Excellent, Early Lock up and smooth Release.
The Stainless Steel Bolsters have a Beautiful Raised, Diamond Cut Overlapping Fan Motif
Andre Anodized and Fileworked the Solid Titanium Liners and added a Full Length G-10 Backspacer for strength. The Thumb Ridges on the spine of the Blade integrate into the Liners very nicely.
Complete with a Low Rider Custom Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch.
A quality knife at a great price.
