WE Knives 910A "037" Bogardus Bronze Titanium Frame Lock Flipper M390
Designed by Kellen Bogardus, the WE Knives 037 is a large every day carry that is slim and light weight while offering a nearly 4 inch blade. The 037 has a unique tab lock construction that mimics the clean lines of an integral and minimizes parts while offering exceptional strength. The full size handle has finger grooves and contours for security and comfort while maintaining a clean, visual appeal. This version comes with a bronze anodized titanium handle and blasted and polished M390 blade.
Blade: The Bohler M390 blade rides on a ceramic ball bearing pivot for ultra smooth, fast deployment via the integral flipper tab. The blade is first blasted and then polished for a beautiful, functional finish. The blade is has a well balanced 3.5mm thickness with a jimped thumb ramp and forward scoop for multiple thumb positions. This blade is durable for serious use while being fast and maneuverable for finer work with a long clip point and full height flat grind for excellent piercing and slicing performance.
Handle: The faux integral, tab long handle construction has clean, ergonomic lines with contours to fill the hand. The finger grooves provide excellent security in the grip while the smooth spine and contoured sides are comfortable for all day use. A 3D milled clip sits in a milled section of the handle removing a potential hot spot in the grip. The steel lock face equipped frame lock is smooth and rock solid. The handles are finished in a tumbled bronze anodization and the front scale has segments of aesthetic milling.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
