The Custom John Gray THUCK Perversion Titanium is smaller, slimmer and lighter than the original THUCK. The Perversion is not aggressively large or small, making for an excellent EDC sized carry. Designed to have a deeply curved handle and upswept blade for a natural in-hand feel and cutting angle to reduce wrist fatigue during use. Brand new directly from John Gray.
The Blade: Composed of CTS-XHP, the upswept blade rides on caged ball bearings providing for smooth flipping action. Flips open powerfully with a push on the integral blade flipper along - no wrist action needed. Horizontally hand rubbed satin finish compliments the darker gray of the titanium handle. John has also left the blade sterile of a maker's mark.
The Handle: Carved titanium forms a solid handle frame with bead-blast finish and complimenting brushed look for added character. Custom stainless steel pivot has also been carved and finished to match the titanium flawlessly. The lower handle slab forms a frame lock mechanism that functions very smoothly with zero stickiness. Attached carved and blasted titanium pocket clip for tip up right handed carry finishes this THUCK Perversion off.
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.
