A classic big game hunting knife adapted to a modern folding knife platform, the Kalinga is now being produced in a premium, Legacy edition collectors' run. The beefy, upswept skinner blade is made from American CPM-S30V steel with ambidextrous thumb studs while the handle has thick brass liners with integral scalloped bolsters that fit with beautiful Buffalo Horn and White Turquoise handle scales with contrasting red liners. This Kalinga Folder is a numbered, limited production of 100 pieces. Made in the USA and backed by the Buck "Forever" Warranty.

Brand new, direct from Buck Knives.

Blade: The blade is made from satin finished, BOS Heat Treated CPM S30V which offers excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance with riding smoothly on phosphor bronze washers. The deep hollow grind on this trailing point blade would make this a proficient slicer, if you could bring yourself to use it. The blade opens via a dual thumb studs just like the original with a crowned and polished spine that is fitting for this custom piece. The back of the blade is laser etched "Limited Edition", number of 100 and features the designer Jeff Legerton's signature.

Handle: The familiar Kalinga construction retains the beefy brass liners and bolsters with upgrades as follows: Scalloped texturing on the bolsters and Buffalo Horn and White Turquoise handles with red liners. A simple yet robust stainless steel liner is added to form the locking mechanism that holds the blade securely in the open position. Both brass and steel liners are skeletonized to maintain a manageable weight on this beautiful behemoth.

Legacy Edition: Comes with a glass topped, wood display box and Certificate of Authenticity.

Bos Heat Treated CPM-S30V: A martensitic, powdered stainless steel with high levels of wear and corrosion resistance. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. This gives it a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance. Paul Bos heat treat is one of the best and enhances performance all around.
