The original design spec, the Genesis is a perfect "just right" Praetorian size. The Praetorian Genesis Ti is the middle ground between the standard and Micro versions with a beefed up blade and handle construction for folks who want to hard use their EDC folder. This drop point version has a Vulcan finish 3V blade, flamed hardware, brushed and flamed clip and faced aquamarine anodized handles with "Hammered Fade" sculpted front scale.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian, drop point blade is made from ultra tough, 3/16" thick CPM-3V ground with a mid-height hollow grind delivering powerful slicing and piercing performance with peerless durability in this daily carry blade. The Vulcan finish is discreetly non-reflective in use while offering a unique visual appeal. The fine point pierces with ease and excels at detail work while the phosphor bronze washer pivot offers smooth, ambidextrous deployment 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 slabs of titanium and an NP3 clear coated D2 back spacer form the handle. Both scales are faced and flamed with the front scale sporting milled finger groove divots and "Hammered Fade" sculpting for enhanced traction and visual appeal. The back scale forms the simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism for secure lockup and safe use. Construction is completed with flamed 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 3D brushed/flamed machined titanium pocket clip. Includes an S3 hard case.
CPM-3V: is a high carbon alloy steel that extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance. However, care is required to prevent corrosion. The edge can be ground thin as it is tough enough to support a fine edge. 3V delivers the highest level of toughness while maintaining good edge retention.
