WE Knives Kitefin LE Gold Shred Carbon Fiber Resin 20CV Titanium Frame Lock Flipper 2009A
Named after a small, sleek, deep-sea dwelling shark, the WE Knives Kitefin has many of the same qualities as its namesake and makes for an excellent choice for a gentleman's everyday carry folder while offering good utility to handle your daily cutting tasks. Robust, integral titanium frame lock construction and a premium stainless steel blade deliver practical performance on this stylishly simple design. This Limited Edition version comes with a hand rubbed satin CPM-20CV blade, gold shred carbon fiber resin front scale and tumbled bronze anodized titanium frame.
Brand new, direct from WE Knife Co.
Blade: A classic drop point blade is elevated with a high height flat grind, nearly full length swedge and hand rubbed satin finish. Riding smooth on a ceramic bearing pivot the blade deploys with speed via the index flipper tab while jimping on the spine offers enhanced traction. CPM-20CV offers top-end performance for everyday use with excellent slicing and piercing thanks to the grind and swedge.
Handle: On the front a titanium liner supports a sleek and stylish gold and carbon fiber shred resin scale for striking visual appeal and comfort in the hand. The back is a solid slab of titanium milled with an integral frame lock and steel lock face insert for smooth, reliable and secure lockup for the life of the knife. Liner, frame and back spacer are tumbled bronze anodized titanium assembled with matching bronze anodized titanium hardware. A slim, elegant and ergonomic design fits as well in the pocket as it does in the hand.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only, flamed titanium deep carry clip.
CPM 20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear-resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel, analogous to Bohler M390 and CTS-204P, and offers some of the best corrosion resistance and wear resistance in combination with a relative ease of sharpening. These properties along with a working hardness in the low 60s HRC make 20CV a prime choice among custom and production makers.
