Karambit - a type of knife that originated in Indonesia, with roots in Malaysia and the Philippines. It is characterized by a finger ring and sickle shape blade, which is characterized by great cutting efficiency - imitates the way an eagle claw or tiger claw tears. Used as a work knife and for defense.
Emerson Opener (Emerson Wave) Ernest Emerson's patented hook on the back of the blade allows for quick opening of the blade when removing the knife from a pocket by hooking the hook over the edge of the pocket.
ELMAX - the highest quality modern powder tool steel of the third generation. It is characterized by high carbon and chromium content and, thanks to the metallurgical process, exceptionally fine grain structure and uniform carbide distribution. It provides extreme edge retention, high wear and corrosion resistance. Manufactured in Böhler-Uddeholm, Austria.
Aggressive Hawkbill type, rounded blade shape has great cutting efficiency and speed. Plain blade with ultra thin tip and strongly curved edge, finished with anti-reflective Bead Blasted method. The oval cutout in the blade increases the thumb support hump, ramp (Thumb jimping) for better control and multiple grip options. The entire blade is locked with a thick titanium Frame Lock leaf at the end of which a steel insert is attached to prevent the lock face from rubbing off.
Asymmetrical, on one side deeply textured carbon fiber cover, on the other the same Carbon Fiber and a piece of solid titanium being the basis of the lock. The facings are screwed to the backspacer made of a single piece of titanium and finished with an enlarged polished head, the Back Ring. It makes it easier to rotate the folder around the finger, allowing you to perform traditional techniques. Two-position titanium clip allows the knife to be carried in tip-up position.
Folder is packaged in a zippered soft elegant pouch with the manufacturer's logo for safe carrying / storage of the knife.
