The Delta T/E Tanto Edge has a well earned reputation as a hard use tactical knife and was the 2012 American Made Knife of the Year. The just under four inch blade has a reinforced tip that is ready to pierce it's target. The blade opens on a smooth ceramic bearing pivot system via ambidextrous dual thumb studs that also act as blade stops. Steel inserts under the G10 contact the thumb studs for a solid stop. An integrated heat treated 17-4 PH® stainless steel lock-bar and backstrap locks up the blade rock solid.
This version has a stonewash finished Elmax blade with black G10 frame and bead-blasted hardware. The frames are 3D contoured for both comfort and function. Light textured G10 and strategic placement of jimping provides grip even under wet conditions. Stainless tip up carry pocket clip and an integrated lanyard loop on the backstrap makes this knife a great EDC. Brand new direct from Microtech.
Elmax is a high chromium, vanadium, and molybdenum alloyed steel that offers a high wear resistance, high compressive strength, corrosion resistant and very good dimensional stability. Through a proprietary process of powder metallurgy both high wear resistance and corrosion resistance has been achieved.
