Medford Micro Praetorian T Tanto Tumbled S35VN Blue Anodized Titanium Frame Lock Folder
The 2/3 size of the Micro Praetorian T is a chunky folder that offers the same blade and scale thickness as its larger counterpart. This beefy little monster can easily be slipped into smaller pockets while offering the same durability and similar ergonomic grip of its bigger brother. If you're looking for a smaller version of the Praetorian T or just want a compact chunky folder, this is the knife for you. This version has a tumbled, CPM-S35VN Tanto Point blade, bead blast blue anodized front and lock side and flame anodized clip and hardware.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian, Tanto point blade is made from tough, 3/16" thick CPM-S35VN that has been tumbled and then ground with a mid-height hollow grind delivering a powerful slicing performance with piercing Tanto point and tank-like durability. The blade deploys smoothly on the phosphor bronze washer pivot and opens ambidextrously via the large blade fuller milling. Aggressive jimping on the spine transitions into the handle and offers unparalleled traction in the hand.
Handle: Two beefy, 1/8" slabs of anodized titanium and an NP3 coated D2 back spacer make up the handle. The front scale is milled with finger groove divots for enhanced traction while the back scale forms the simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism. The construction is completed with titanium hardware and partial back spacer with exposed striker pommel. Both slabs and blade are marked with an individual serial number.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only 3D Machined Titanium pocket clip. Includes an S3 Hard Case for transportation and storage.
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.
