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 recent NYCKS 2014
Andre is known World Wide for his precision Flippers and the L-51 is one of his newest flipper models!
The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a beautiful Satin finish. The handle is a CNC worked 3d Carbon Fiber.
Perfect Detent, 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 and Anodized Ti Liners with a Black G-10 backspacer.
Complete with a Low Rider Carbon Fiber Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch.
An incredible Custom Flipper, direct from the Maker.
