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.
The back springs are quite strong on this batch and require 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 matte finished Natural Canvas Micarta handles held together with titanium Torx hardware. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop operation for safety. The large, classic handle profile is comfortable during periods of extended use while maintaining a slim, easy to carry profile.
About AEB-L: AEB-L (Sandvik 13c26) is similar to a stainless 52100 and is often utilized as a steel for razor blades. AEB-L forms very small, hard evenly distributed carbides which delivers excellent toughness, edge retention, ease of sharpening and a fine razor-like edge as well as exceptional corrosion resistance. This is a popular choice among custom makers.
