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 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.
