Medford Panzer Tanto PVD S35VN Flamed Bronze 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, and tumbled bronze anodized handle with flamed front scale 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. Delivered in a tumbled bronze anodized finish, both scales are 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 with the flamed finish on the front adds visual appeal while being discreet in use. 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, black PVD 3D titanium pocket clip.
CPM-S35VN: A modified version of S30V designed for improved toughness over and easier machining and polish. Toughness is improved roughly 15-20% with a slight decrease in wear resistance (edge retention). Corrosion resistance is also lightly higher, close to AISI 420. S35VN is a well-balanced steel for daily use.
