Medford 187 DP Drop Point Black PVD D2 Tan G10 Titanium Frame Lock Folder MKT073
Getting its name from the 3/16 inch stock used for the blade and handle slabs, the Medford Knife and Tool 187 DP is a tank of a folder that is capable of handling just about anything. The drop point blade is functional for a variety of work with a mid-height hollow grind offering solid performance and durability. This version comes with a black PVD coated D2 tool steel blade, tan G10 front scale and tumbled bronze titanium frame.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: Made from thick D2 tool steel the drop point blade with a discreetly non-reflective black PVD coating. The deep mid-height hollow grind delivers solid slicing and durability with a fine tip for piercing and detail work, making this a great all around blade. High traction spine jimping and an index choil provide a grip for controlled work. Operation is smooth thanks to the oversized bronze washer pivot with ambidextrous opening via the oval blade hole.
Handle: Two 3/16 inch slabs are joined with barrel spacers in an open back construction. The front is textured G10 for lightweight durability, weather resistance and traction. The rear frame is solid titanium with a dark tumbled bronze finish and cut to form the robust integral frame lock mechanism. Both slabs have chamfered edges for enhanced comfort and provide plenty of real estate for large gloved hands. Black hardware and flamed lock bar stabilizer finish the construction.
Carries via a tip-up, right hand, black PVD 3D titanium pocket clip.
D2 Tool Steel: Used as a die cutting steel since WW II, D2 offers a good combination of hardness and wear resistance with moderate toughness and stain resistance. High chromium content for a tool steel (10-13%) gives D2 better corrosion resistance than most high carbon steels.
