This Direware SOLO model defines the overbuilt knife which has become popular in recent years. Made from only the best materials it is built to perfection using thick blade stock and scale material with a decisive, bearing pivot opening action which is sure to turn some heads. Direware builds them one at a time with an eye for precision and detail making each knife a unique piece.

The Blade: The SOLO packs a wide, compound ground, drop point M390 blade with satin finished hollow grinds and flats. The extreme height of the blade allows for a razor thin edge for optimal slicing performance while retaining plenty of thickness at the spine for durability. The eye-catching, multi-grind design of the blade is trademark Direware.

The Handle: Thick, satin finished titanium forms the framework for the SOLO and houses a single Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber inlay on the front scale that reduces weight and provides an aesthetic focal point to the piece. Comes standard with a robust, 3D machined titanium clip for tip-up, right hand only carry. The integral frame lock mechanism is flawless in operation and offers unparalleled reliability. Construction is completed with Titanium spool standoffs and an oversize, chain ring bolt pivot.

About M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has top-end corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid corrosion by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening which makes getting and maintaining that razor sharp edge much easier. Analogs: CTS-204P and CPM 20CV.
