Spyderco Tropen Compression Lock Emerson Wave Flipper S30V G10 C237GP
The Tropen is an exotic design from Argentinean custom knife maker Javier Vogt that delivers a combination of style, performance and premium features that is hard to beat. The huge, sweeping S30V blade rides on specialized bearing washers and can be deployed in three ways: Emerson Wave, RoundHole or flipper. Contoured and polished G10 gives a secure grip and elegant look to this tactical gentleman.
Brand new and direct from Spyderco Knives.
Blade: The S30V blade is fully flat ground and satin finished for optimal cutting performance. The blade is hard to define with a subtle drop at the harpoon tip and a dramatic sweeping arc of the the cutting edge reminiscent of a scimitar. The Tropen has belly and point to spare and rides on a ball bearing pivot for fast, smooth deployment via the flipper or Round Hole. An Emerson Wave feature allows for simultaneous draw and deployment when the seconds count.
Handle: Polished and contoured black G10 handle scales are supported by nested, skeletonized liners delivering a rugged and ergonomic handle. A semi-open back construction with partial g10 spacer reduces weight and makes for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up stainless steel hourglass pocket clip.
CPM-S30V: A martensitic, powdered stainless steel with high levels of wear and corrosion resistance. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. This gives it a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
