Medford Praetorian T Drop Point Vulcan S35VN Faced Flamed Falling Leaves 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 Vulcan finished CPM-S35VN drop point blade and faced and flamed anodized handles with "Falling Leaves" milling.
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 black PVD coated D2 back spacer make up the handle. Both handle slabs are first blasted, tumbled and blue anodized then given a "falling leaves" pattern milling followed by the faced and flamed treatment for a stunning look. 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 flamed 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: 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.
