This version comes with a Black Stonewashed blade, matching titanium handles and a Carbon Fiber overlay.
Brand new, direct from Viper Knives of Italy.
Blade: The Lille offers dual deployment with an integral index flipper and an oval blade hole. Both are fast and smooth thanks to the thrust bearing pivot. The M390 blade is Black Stonewashed finished for discreet use and wear hiding with a classy crowned spine and a tall, flat grind for excellent cutting performance. The big belly packs plenty of cutting edge into the compact 2.5" blade. A section of forward jimping on the spine allows for optimal control for fine work.
Handle: The handles are made from blasted gray, CNC milled titanium that feels great in the hand. The sweeping Carbon Fiber overlay adds a contoured feel to the handle as well as added visual interest. The titanium liner lock gives solid lock up for secure operation. The small titanium back spacer is color matched to the handle and end mounted pocket clip while a generous hole at the pommel makes for easy lanyard attachment.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, titanium deep carry clip.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end, user grade knives thanks to its high level edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance making it very low maintenance. It also resists burr formation for greater ease of sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and CPM-20CV.
