The A8 Bharucha Collaboration from A2 Knives is a full sized folder featuring clean lines, ergonomic design and detail oriented construction. Custom build meets everyday function in this A8 offering vibrant Red Carbon Fiber handle scales and premium CTS-XHP blade. 

Brand new directly from A2 Knives. 

The Blade: The blade of the A8 is made from CTS-XHP with a custom hand-rubbed horizontal satin finish and hollow grind for powerful slicing action. The point drops from spine to edge along a polished swedge that catches the eye and creates a fine yet robust tip. The flipper and plunge line follow the lines of the handle creating a clean and elegant look. A moderate detent provides enough tension to give the A8 Flipper fast and decisive deployment on its ball bearing pivot.

The Handle: Gently contoured red carbon fiber handle scales sit atop dual thick titanium liners. Satin finished and blue anodized, the thick twin titanium liners complement the smoky red carbon fiber perfectly with one side forming the liner lock mechanism. Construction on this piece if finished with a satin titanium pivot screw, titanim torx hardware and full length carbon fiber backspacer.

Titanium pocket clip affixed for tip-up right-hand carry. 

About CTS-XHP: Developed by Carpenter Technology Steel to be a stainless alternative to D2. CTS-XHP and CPM S30V have comparable performance in terms of both edge retention and toughness all things being equal.
