Grindhouse Knives KD #8 Non-Flipper Two-Tone S45VN Machined Titanium Folder 4787
Custom maker Sam Jones A.K.A. Grindhouse Knives, delivers practical and utilitarian knives that are overbuilt like tanks for serious daily use. Industrial style, ergonomic comfort, and quality handmade production makes each Grindhouse knife a unique and capable cutting tool. The #8 KD non-flipper comes with a two-tone CPM-S45VN Sheepsfoot blade, raw machine finished titanium handle slabs, and a crystal titanium UNOB clip.
Blade: The 4.7 mm thick CPM-S45VN blade rides smooth on the ceramic bearing pivot with plenty of inertia for decisive deployment via the dual titanium thumb studs. The stonewashed tip swedge and shallow hollow grind provide solid performance on the Sheepsfoot blade which has a more rounded tip for added safety. The hand rubbed satin finish on the flats contrasts the stonewashed grinds for an appealing two-tone finish.
Handle: Slimmed down to under 4.5 mm, the contoured titanium slabs are joined with barrel spacers to reduce weight for more convenient carry. The handle has a neutral design for versatility in multiple grips. A raw machined finish pair with satin hardware for a visually appealing look that complements the two-tone blade while the integral frame lock is solid and secure for safe use.
Carries via a right-hand milled titanium clip with UNOB crystal finish.
CPM-S45VN: An evolution in Crucible's S30-series, S45VN shows improved edge retention and corrosion resistance relative to S35VN and offers an upgrade to Elmax with better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and sharpness with similar edge retention.
