Made from premium, Bohler M390 stainless steel with a fine satin finish the blade has a high saber grind, aggressive Bowie-like clip point swedge and razor sharp edge. It rides on a ceramic bearing pivot and hardened stainless steel washers for a reliably smooth deployment with a well dialed in ceramic detent for decisive deployment.
Handle: Modern in construction, the straight Barlow handle offers a classic style and functional ergonomics. Two thick titanium liners form the handle and the long integral bolsters, signature to the Barlow. Rugged Canvas Micarta scales are contoured for a comfortable, ergonomic grip that provides solid traction. The rear liner is cut into a reliable liner lock mechanism which is accessed via a cutout in the bolster and outfitted with a hardened steel lock face for smooth, reliable operation. Construction is rounded out with a titanium partial back spacer and satin Torx hardware.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
