Jimping on the spine transitions to the handle for traction and security in hand, with a generous ricasso for added safety. The blade opens smoothly via the ambidextrous dual thumb studs.
Handle: Textured black G10 scales house the blade and robust Tri-Ad back lock delivering a slim handle and rock solid security in use. A subtle taper toward the pommel locks the knife in the hand, while milled holes reduce weight and increase traction. Jimping top and bottom help with indexing.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel pocket clip.
CPM-S35VN: A modified version of S30V designed for improved toughness over and easier machining and polish. Toughness is improved roughly 15-20%, with a slight decrease in wear resistance (edge retention). Corrosion resistance is also lightly higher, close to AISI 420. S35VN is a well-balanced steel for daily use.
Tri-Ad Lock: The Tri-Ad lock system functions like any back lock: pushing down on a lock bar spring in the handle releases the blade. It differs by adding a stop pin between the blade tang and lock bar. This pin handles any pressure put on the knife and allows the spring to self adjust over time, resulting in a rock solid lock that can handle an absurd amount of weight in lock strength tests.
