Andre Thorburn

 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

Direct from the Maker from the Blade 2015

Andre is known World Wide for his precision Flippers, so I am very excited to offer his work to my Customers 


 The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a beautiful Satin finish.  The handle is Orange G-10 which fits with precision against the rare Black G-10 bolster onlays.


This is one of Andre’s Most Popular Flippers, 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 Integral Thumb Recess along with the subtle Thumb Ridges (which are continued onto the Ti Frame) make for a very comfortable Full Hand Grip. 

Very Secure, Early lock up!


Fully Fileworked Ti Liners with a black G10 backspacer.


Complete with a Low Rider Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch. 

 An incredible Custom Flipper, direct from the Maker.
