 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.

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! 

This Thorburn flipper has absolutely beautifully Hand Textured Zirconium Bolsters ~ some of the BEST Coloring I have seen on any Zirconium.
