Description

Fox Knives has paired up with designer and custom knife maker Tashi Bharucha to bring forth the Phoenix. The Phoenix features the clean lines and ergonomic design Tashi is known for and Fox has executed the design with precision fit and finish from premium materials like titanium and Bohler M390. Polished mill work and a 3D millled titanium pocket clip add to the elegance and a nearly seamless titanium back spacer gives this knife an "Integral-like" feel. Brand new from Fox Knives, Made in Italy.

The Blade: The blade of the Phoenix is made from Bohler M390 with a satin finish nearly full flat grind for powerfully slicing action. The point drops from spine to edge along a polished swedge that catches the eye and creates a fine yet robust tip. The flipper and plunge line follow the lines of the handle creating a clean and elegant look. A moderate detent provides enough tension to give the Phoenix a fast and decisive deployment on its ball bearing pivot.

The Handle: The handles are made from blue anodized titanium that goes through a two-step manufacturing process to achieve the polished geometric mill work design. The handle scales and back spacer are nearly seamless in the fitting and are machined to form a continuous line giving the knife an almost Integral construction feel in the hand. A single position, right hand, tip-up, 3D machined pocket clip delivers secure carry.

Included is a lined Italian Leather zipper pouch for storage and transportation when not in use.

About M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a excellent corrosion resistance, meaning maintenance for most users will mean simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.

About Tashi Bharucha: Tashi has been designing knives with some of the top makers for some time. Usually he would have the maker produce a handful knives, with the only stipulation being that he could keep one for himself. Demand quickly outweighed production and these knives regularly fetch big money on the secondary market. Recently he has began his own work and produces mid-tech runs alongside the individual maker knives.
