The Blade: The Dan 2 sports a Wharncliffe blade made from N690. It has a highly attractive satin finish on the nearly full height flat grind and a slightly crowned spine adding to the classy look of this gentleman's folder. A short swedge at the tip delivers a fine point for enhanced piercing as well as detail work. This is an everyday workhorse blade wrapped in a classy package.
The Handle: The handles are ergonomic and contoured to provide comfort and security even during long use. This version has eye-catching Silver Twill scales attached to nested stainless steel liners. The liners also contain the Action Stopper mechanism, a set of detent balls that deliver secure, non-locking operation that is similar to a slip joint. A partial titanium back spacer, anodized blue, provides a solid mount for the reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry clip. The slim and smooth design nearly disappears in the pocket.
About N690: Bohler N690 is a conventionally produced stainless steel with Cobalt and Vanadium added giving it performance at or above VG-10. This steel is very stainless, has good edge retention, is relatively easy to sharpen and takes a fine, razor edge. For every day carry and use N690 delivers excellent performance.
