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 Thorburn is known World Wide for his precision Flippers, so I am very excited to offer his work to my Customers. This is one of his finest Gentleman’s Flippers that I feel offers incredible Value for the Price.
The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a near Flawless Satin Rubbed finish. The handle is Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber – the handles fit with precision against the textured and anodized titanium bolster onlays.
This is one of Andre’s Most Popular Flipper Models, 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!
Very secure Lock ~ Early Lock up and very secure.
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. The Two Tone Custom Anodized Titanium Bolster adds a Dramatic Splash of Color and Visual appeal!
Fully Fileworked and Anodized Ti Liners with a Full Length Black G-10 backspacer.
Complete with a Low Rider Titanium Clip and a Velcro Storage Pouch.
A Custom Flipper with an incredible price, direct from the Maker.
