Liong Mah Design KUF v2 Carbon Fiber Top Flipper M390
The Liong Mah designed KUF (Kitchen Utility Folder) is back and even better in the KUF v2! Slimmed down from the original the KUF v2 is contoured and comfortable in the hand. While you can use the blade hole for deployment the v2 is equipped with an innovative new top flipper tab that allows for even more deployment options, all fast and smooth thanks to the ceramic bearing pivot. This version of the KUF v2 is made from 3D contoured titanium with carbon fiber inlays, integral framelock and satin finished M390 blade.
Brand new directly from designer Liong Mah.
Blade: A big sweeping belly pairs well with the reverse Tanto point blade on the KUF v2 to deliver a solid combination of robust piercing and efficient slicing with M390 offering optimal edge retention and corrosion resistance. The satin finish lends the blade an added touch of class with solid performance. The edge sits below the handle for comfort when cutting on flat surfaces with that edge curve delivering good rocking or push cuts. The blade has multiple deployment options thanks to the generous blade hole and innovative top flipper tab.
Handle: The subtle contour of the handles makes for a comfortable and ergonomic feel in the hand with a neutral design that works well in a variety of grips. Carbon fiber inlays add a touch of modern style. A small titanium backspacer houses an inline pin for lanyard attachment and the construction is completed with satin finished titanium hardware. The integral titanium frame lock is smooth, solid and reliable. Elegance, simplicity and performance, the KUF v2 is the whole package.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
Designed by Liong Mah and built to the tightest tolerances by David Deng of Reate Knives for optimal fit and finish. Includes a zipper pouch with patch and microfiber.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
