Brand new from Fox Knives, Italy.
Blade: A modified Sheepsfoot blade is delivered with a full height flat grind that gives the M390 blade excellent slicing performance. The Sheepsfoot has a more robust tip that is safer in use while still giving good control for piercing and fine work. A thumb ramp with jimping gives traction for added control and transitions smoothly into the handle for added comfort. The ceramic ball bearing pivot offers fast, smooth and reliable flipper deployment for one hand operation. Acid washed and tumbled, the blade is discreetly non-reflective and hides wear from use.
Handle: Dual slabs of titanium deliver rugged durability and a secure grip with plenty of style. A thumb scoop and pronounced index cutout make for a secure and comfortable grip and powerful leverage for heavy work. An open back construction makes for easy cleaning and maintenance while a generous hole is added for lanyard attachment. The integral frame lock is equipped with a hardened steel lock face insert for smooth operation and rock solid lockup for the life of the knife. A matching acid washed finish give the knife a discreet and rugged look.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry wire clip.
Bohler M390: A popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its exceptional edge retention, M390 has a good corrosion resistance for minimal maintenance. Another great feature of this steel is the ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
