Brand new, directly from Medford Knife & Tool, USA.
Blade: The Tanto profile blade is made from +3 mm thick tumbled S35VN that is compound ground: a mid-height hollow on the primary edge for exceptional slicing and flat ground on the forward section for added durability in piercing. The thinner blade stock reduces the weight and thickness while enhancing cutting performance. The tumbled finish looks good while hiding wear from use. The blade deploys smoothly on the phosphor bronze washer pivot and opens ambidextrously via the large blade fuller milling. A generous finger choil allows for optimal control of the blade for fine work.
Handle: Forming the handle are two +3 mm slabs of matching PVD coated titanium with the front scale featuring stepped milling for index finger traction. The back scale is cut forming an integral frame lock mechanism for solid lock up and safe operation. Both scales have an aesthetic milled groove on the spine for weight reduction and enhanced ergonomic comfort. An easy to maintain open back construction reduces weight and is completed with flamed stainless steel hardware and a triangle hole for lanyard attachment. 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, faced and flamed 3D 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.
