Medford Praetorian T Drop Point Tumbled S35VN Faced Flame Blue Anodized Titanium Frame Lock Folder
Praetorian Guards were elite men chosen from the Legions of Rome to serve as personal protectors of the Emperor. The MKT Praetorian T is an elite tool befitting of the name that will guard you well. Truly built like a tank, the Praetorian T pairs robust construction with premium materials to deliver unsurpassed reliability you will be able to pass down through the generations. This version has a tumbled, CPM-S35VN drop point blade, faced flame anodized blue front with matching clip and bead blasted blue anodized lock side.
Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The utilitarian, drop point blade is made from tough, 3/16" thick CPM-S35VN that has been tumbled and then ground with a mid-height hollow grind delivering a powerful slicing performance with a fine tip for piercing and detail work. With over 3.5 inches of razor sharp cutting edge, the Praetorian is more than capable of handling any task you are presented with. The blade deploys smoothly on the phosphor bronze washer pivot and opens ambidextrously 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, 1/8" slabs of anodized titanium and a NP3 coated D2 back spacer make up the handle. The front scale is milled with finger groove divots for enhanced traction while the back scale forms the simple, robust, integral frame lock mechanism. The construction is completed with satin finish titanium hardware and partial back spacer with exposed striker pommel. 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 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.
