Medford Praetorian Genesis Ti Tanto Vulcan 3V Faced Flamed Bronze Titanium Frame Lock Folder
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 Tanto version has a Vulcan finished CPM-3V blade, bronze anodized, faced and flamed front scale with matching clip and, black PVD coated frame lock side with bronze polished pinstripe.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The Tanto blade is made from ultra tough, 3/16" thick CPM-3V ground with a mid-height hollow grind on the primary edge for powerful slicing and a flat ground tip for piercing performance and enhanced durability. The Vulcan finish is discreetly non-reflective in use while offering a unique visual appeal. A phosphor bronze washer pivot offers smooth, ambidextrous deployment via the large blade fuller milling with aggressive spine jimping delivering unparalleled traction in the hand.
Handle: Two beefy slabs of titanium and a black PVD coated D2 back spacer form the handle. Both scales are bronze anodized with the front scale sporting milled finger groove divots for enhanced traction and a stunning faced and flamed finish. The back scale forms the simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism for secure lockup and safe use and is finished in black PVD with a polished bronze pinstripe around the chamfered edge. Construction is completed with black PVD titanium hardware, partial back spacer with exposed striker pommel and faced and flamed lock bar stabilizer and clip. Both slabs and blade are marked with an individual serial number. Includes an S3 hard case and vintage Japanese Kimono fabric Maui Special "Samurai Sack" pouch for storage.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
CPM-3V: A high carbon alloy steel that is extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance, though care is still required. High toughness translates to a stable edge that can be ground thin for enhanced performance. 3V has good edge retention, approaching VG-10 and CPM-154, with more than 3x the toughness.
