Medford Praetorian Genesis G Tanto PVD S35VN Black G10 Bronze Titanium Frame Lock Folder
The original Praetorian design size, the Praetorian Genesis is a perfect choice for the “This one is too big, this one is too small” knife user. The Praetorian Genesis is the middle ground between the standard and Micro versions that is large enough for nearly anything while still being relatively friendly for everyday carry. This version of the Genesis G has a black PVD coated, S35VN Tanto blade, hardware, clip and spacer, black G10 front scale and bronze anodized lock side.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian, Tanto blade is made from ultra tough, 3/16 inch thick S35VN that has been black PVD coated for discreet use. Ground with a mid-height hollow grind it delivers over 3 inches of razor sharp cutting edge and a powerfully piercing, flat ground Tanto point. Deploying smoothly on the phosphor bronze washer pivot the blade opens ambidextrously via the large blade fuller milling. Aggressive jimping on the spine transitions into the handle and offers exceptional traction.
Handle: A G10 front scale, beefy slab of anodized titanium and PVD coated D2 back spacer make up the handle. The front scale is textured for traction while reducing the weight by over half an ounce! The bronze anodized and tumbled frame is cut to form the simple, robust, integral titanium frame lock. Over 4 inches of grip area can accommodate even large gloved hands. Construction is completed with PVD coated titanium hardware and partial back spacer with exposed striker pommel. Both slabs and blade are marked with an individual serial number. Includes a padded hard case for transportation and storage.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only 3D Machined Titanium pocket clip.
CPM S35VN: was designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V and the adjusted chemistry 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.
