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 New York Custom Knife Show 2016

Andre 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 amazing XL Gentleman’s Flippers 


 The blade was hand ground from tough N690 Stainless steel which Andre gave a near Flawless finish and the handles are Carbon Fiber with  Red Liners, and an Textured Zirconium Bolster inlay.


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! 


Beautifully textured Zirconium Bolsters.


Superb action and perfect Lock Up.


The Contoured Scales and subtle Thumb Ridges make for a very secure Full Hand Grip.


Andre also gave this knife a Fully Fileworked and Anodized Titanium Frame with a Black G10 backspacer.


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


 A Custom Flipper with an incredible price, direct from the Maker. COA included.
