Medford Praetorian Slim Flipper Drop Point Tumbled S35VN Violet Titanium Frame Lock Folder MKT077
Medford's "Big Knife" performance is distilled down into a slim, lightweight, everyday carry package in the Praetorian Slim. Large enough for big jobs and plenty robust, the Praetorian Slim is similar in size to the Praetorian Genesis only scaled down in thickness and weight to offer a Medford design that can easily be carried every day in your pocket, pack, purse of dress slacks. The Praetorian Slim Flipper pairs everything you love about the standard version with a bearing pivot flipper for fast deployment. This version has a tumbled S35VN drop point blade and violet anodized titanium handles.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian drop point blade is made from 1/8 inch thick CPM-S35VN with tumbled finish on the flats and machine satin on the grinds. Ground with a mid-height hollow grind for powerful slicing and piercing performance and solid durability, the blade has just over 3 inches of razor sharp cutting edge. The blade deploys smoothly on a ball bearing pivot with ambidextrous operation via the large blade fuller milling or jimped index flipper. When closed, the exposed tang can be used as an emergency glass breaker.
Handle: Two +1/8 inch slabs of violet anodized titanium are joined with barrel spacers in an open back construction with milled finger groove divots on the front for traction. The rear frame is cut forming a simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism with satin Lockbar Stabilizer. Over 4 inches of grip area can accommodate even large gloved hands while still carrying slim in the pocket. Construction is completed with satin titanium hardware, large oval holes for lanyard attachment and an individual serial number on blade and handles. Includes S3 hard case and Certificate of Creation and Authenticity.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up 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.
