Sergey Rogovets TNT XR Tanto 20 Front Flipper Satin S45VN Titanium Frame Lock 4349
The Rogovets Custom TNT XR Tanto 2020 is a truly custom knife as Sergey makes each piece without the use of a CNC or water jet machine. All the work on this piece is done in his shop, by him, by hand. Every part of the process, from the heat treating of the blade to the manufacturing of parts, is done by hand. This front flipper design has a satin finished S45VN Tanto blade riding on thrust bearings housed in a brushed, blue anodized 6al4v titanium frame with matching back spacer.
Brand new, direct from Sergey Rogovets, USA.
Blade: The Tanto blade is ground in a high height, hollow saber grind for exceptional slicing performance with a flat ground Tanto point for added durability in piercing. Riding on caged ceramic ball bearings, the blade can be effortlessly deployed using the front flipper tang extension. The blade has a stunning two-tone satin finish, horizontal on the flats and vertical on the grinds.
Handle: Built of two thick, contoured slabs of 6Al4v titanium, both the front and back of the handle are brushed satin matching the blade with an anodized finish. Contoured edges and an ergonomic design combine for a comfortable and secure in-hand feel. Milled with four holes for traction and weight reduction, the front scale is backed by a steel mesh for a custom look and feel. The titanium frame lock is equipped with a hardened D2 tool steel insert that provides smooth and reliable lock operation as well as being an over travel stop. A milled titanium back spacer is anodized blue for a pop of color. A custom pivot is textured for a unique look while the remaining hardware is satin finished.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only, 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
You will find Sergey's signature with unique serial number inscribed on the inside of the back spacer.
Includes a signed Certificate with warranty information, pivot tool bit and Nanuk 310 waterproof case for storage.

Also considered an upgrade to Elmax with similar edge retention but better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and a finer carbide structure (better sharpness).
