The Strider Knives Hand Ground SMF Lego G10 is a considerably sized, aggressively overbuilt and dependable hard use folder. Not for the faint of heart and not dainty, the SMF is the largest of the Strider production folders offering an exceptional grip to large and gloved hands. Built with G10 and titanium handle construction for harsh environments and bronze washer pivot to handle dirt and sand better than ball bearings. Brand new directly from Strider Knives.
The Blade: With a thick CPM-S30V blade, there's not much the SMF can't handle. This model comes with a Hand Ground Tanto point blade which has been two-tone finished (satin grinds/tumbled flats). These feature a deep jimping on the top of the blade ensuring a secure grip during use. Each knife comes with a hair popping edge and is ready to go out of the package.
The Handle: Like most of their folders, the SMF has a combination G10 and Titanium frame. What makes it slightly different from everyone else is that the backspacer, traditionally a seperate piece on most production knives, is instead integral to the front scale. Keeping with the hard use concept, Strider used bronze washers and a chain ring bolt construction to secure the blade. Also incorporated is the Hinderer lock bar stabilizer, which prevents the user from overextending the frame. This version comes with a Hunter green G10 scale in the flat lego textured configuration, with black oxide hardware and flame anodized lock side. A heavy duty flame anodized titanium clip is affixed for tip up every day carry.
These special hand ground SMF's feature the word STRIDER near the lanyard hole/pocket clip on the Ti frame lock side. Brand new direct from Strider Knives.
