Blade: The robust Recurve blade offers well-balanced performance and durability with aggressive slicing ability and is finished with a durable, non-reflective and corrosion resistant Diamond-Like Carbon or DLC. High quality, American CPM-S35VN stainless steel was chosen for its balance of edge retention, corrosion resistance and toughness. It deploys via a dual action automatic mechanism for fast, smooth operation. Simply press the G10 thumb slide up to open and then back down to close.
Handle: Milled, black anodized aluminum handles offer over 4.5 inches of real estate to fill the grip while still offering ease of carry. The contoured handle has smooth chamfered edges paired with strategically placed scallops for a perfect blend of comfort and traction. The front and back of the handles are sterile with company, model and serial number markings on the spine. The handles are completed with black titanium Torx hardware visible on the back, a G10 slide, integral lanyard hole and hardened steel glass breaker inset in the pommel.
Carries via a right hand, tip-down, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
CPM S35VN: was designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. The inclusion of Niobium allows for the formation of niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting some niobium carbides for vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
