Brand new, direct from GiantMouse Knives, Italy.
Blade: Riding on a bronze washer pivot, the classic drop point blade deploys with snappy action via the dual stepped thumb studs. Stonewashed for a rugged, wear hiding look, the M390 blade has a high flat saber grind for a balance of strength and slicing performance. The blade has minimal taper toward the tip giving added strength for piercing and heavy use.
Handle: Hardened, inset stainless steel liners support blue fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle scales with Anso-Texture. FRN is lightweight, durable and impervious to the elements for low maintenance performance. Clean, sweeping lines are aesthetically appealing and offer ergonomic comfort in multiple grips. One liner forms the locking mechanism providing smooth operation and solid, reliable lock up for safe use with jimping for positive disengagement. A matching FRN partial back spacer and stainless Torx hardware round out the construction.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel wire clip.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end, user grade knives thanks to its high level edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance making it very low maintenance. It also resists burr formation for greater ease of sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and CPM-20CV.
