Brand new El Patron 3.25 inch folder direct from Jeremy Robertson of Calavera Cutlery. The El Patron folder is stout, sophisticated and smart. Every part of the El Patron is fabricated by Jeremy to the tightest of tolerances and highest of standards. It is a go-anywhere hardcore tool.
The Blade: Done in a classic drop point style for every day utilitarian tasks to the toughest. It has a wide thumb hole cutout for ease of opening even with a glove on. Thick, convex ground CTS-XHP premium steel has been dark acid wash finished which won't show much wear and tear. Convex grinds and edges are hand done by Jeremy for a tougher, sharper-longer edge. A convex edge is also easy to maintain and restore with a quick strop. This 3.25 rides on caged bearings for smooth deployment every time.
The Handle: Two thick slabs of titanium with a dark tumbled finish provide the strength of the El Patron. The front slab features Jeremy's new checkered texturing which adds grip and a cool look. All the edges are smoothed out and refined for a comfortable feel. A cutout on the front is smoothed out and allows access to the frame lock bar for closing. It also makes a nice spot for your finger(s) to grip when open. Jeremy's lockbar has an extended steel insert that doubles as over travel protection and solid lock up.
The El Patron from Jeremy Robertson is just as solid as they come. Superior design and craftsmanship on every knife with steps skipped. The 3.25 is the perfect size for average medium sized hands. FIts like a glove. This guy comes with a tip up carry titanium pocket clip, titanium screws, open spacers construction for easy cleaning, a notched thumb ramp on the blade spine and lanyard hole.About CTS-XHP: An alloy steel made by Carpenter, CTS-XHP was developed as a corrosion resistant D2 alternative. Our research shows users estimating edge retention slightly ahead of S30V, and toughness comparable to D2. This makes CTS-XHP a premium steel, which should hold a great edge and be reasonably corrosion resistant.
