Steven Kelly took the idea of using the Tank name very seriously when designing this knife. It is overbuilt in every sense of the word. The Tank A-2 has two thick frams slabs with milled grooves that have a unique machined pattern and a hammered bolster area. Appropriately named, this beast has a multi-ground clip point blade of Carpenter Steel's Micro-Melt PD#1 steel and eatures a false top edge and dual machine turned thumb studs. Included features are lock-bar stabilizer, tip up carry titanium pocket clip and lanyard hole. Ships in SK Knives leather zipper pouch with Certificate of Authenticity. Brand new direct from maker.
Micro-Melt® PD #1 alloy is an air hardening cold work die steel possessing wear resistance superior to that of conventional grades such as AISI D2, while still maintaining excellent toughness. In addition, it has the compressive strength required for resistance to deformation in tooling applications. The alloy possesses a fine, uniform carbide distribution resulting from the Carpenter Micro-Melt powder metal process. This uniform microstructure with fine carbide distribution is responsible for the excellent combination of wear resistance and toughness offered by this alloy.
