Trash Panda Knives Kit Slip Joint Satin CPM-154 Carbon Fiber with Bolsters 3779
Trash Panda Knives is a collaborative project including custom knife makers Aaron Frederick, John W Smith and CJ Smith that offers extreme hard use knives that are built to use and take on whatever you can throw at them. The "Kit" is a robust slip joint folder in the style of the classic pocket knife made with modern, high performance materials. This Kit is built with titanium liners and bolsters, a hand rubbed satin CPM-154 blade and carbon fiber scales. Built to take the abuse, if you break the blade on your Kit just send it back to Trash Panda Knives with a good story on how you killed it and a new blade will be installed for free.
Brand new directly from Trash Panda Knives.
Blade: Made from premium CPM-154 stainless steel the clip point blade has an elegant, hand-rubbed satin finish and a fine, hollow ground edge. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop with good walk and talk. Three milled holes in the blade are substituted for a nail nick for opening, adding traction while keeping a clean look. This piece bears the mark of Aaron Frederick as opposed to the standard Trash Panda logo.
The back spring is exceptionally strong on this piece and requires a strong grip to open..
Handle: Offering a blend of modern and traditional design the handle is comprised of a steel back spring, blasted titanium liners and polished carbon fiber handle scales dovetailed to blasted titanium bolsters. The handles are held together with titanium Torx hardware. The large, classic handle profile is comfortable during periods of extended use while maintaining a slim, easy to carry profile.
CPM-154: A particle metallurgy version of 154CM that benefits from the refinement in the PM process providing it with an increase in toughness and easy of finishing. CPM-154 takes a very fine edge and is highly corrosion resistant. Edge retention is going to be on-par with CPM S30V while being easier to resharpen. A great all-around blade steel.
