Medford Panzer Tanto PVD S35VN Blue Titanium Frame Lock Folder
Smaller than the Micro Praetorian T yet just as robust, the tank like Medford Panzer is ideal for carry where blade length is an issue without sacrificing reliability or performance. With a credit card sized footprint the Panzer carries well even with the same blade and handle thickness as its larger cousin. This version has a black PVD coated S35VN Tanto blade, matching clip, tumbled blue anodized titanium handles and black hardware.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: Wide and robust, the Tanto blade is made 3/16" thick S35VN with a mid-height hollow grind for excellent slicing and piercing. The Tanto point offers added durability and utility when cutting on flat surfaces. A deep scoop with aggressive jimping provides traction and leverage for powerful cuts. Finished in a matte black PVD coating the blade is discreetly non-reflective in use and deploys smoothly on the phosphor bronze washer pivot via the removable thumb stud.
Handle: Barrel spacer, captured stop pin and partial PVD coated D2 back spacer support dual slabs of 1/8" thick anodized titanium. Finished in a tumbled blue anodized finish, both scales are left smooth with chamfered edges for comfort and a bracketed design for a secure grip that tucks the pinky under the bottom near the exposed breaker. A simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism provides for secure operation. Construction is completed with black hardware, flamed lock bar stabilizer and lanyard hole that doubles as a 1/4" bit driver. Both slabs and blade are marked with an individual serial number. Includes an S3 Hard Case for transportation and storage.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, 3D titanium black PVD pocket clip.

CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
