Made to look good and handle well, this folder is sure to slide right into your EDC rotation.

Assisted opening with SLT Hidden Flipper Tab offer quick one-handed access to the blade.  Locks open via solid framelock mechanism.

A frame lock graces the backside of the frame offering secure and relaible lock-up and one-hand disengagement. A custom backspacer and reversible deep-carry pocket clip finish off this futuristic looking folder.

8Cr13MoV: Similar to Japanese AUS-8, 8Cr13MoV is a low carbon, high chromium stainless steel with an excellent balance of toughness and strength. It offers good corrosion resistance and is capable of acquiring a razor sharp edge. Edge holding is significantly lower than S30V but close to 440C. Sharpening should be a breeze.
